ALAN BARNES OCTET
Art Pepper recorded a classic in 1959 called Art Pepper +11 with arrangements by Marty Paich and featuring Art Pepper as the main soloist throughout. With this in mind, Alan commissioned Mark Nightingale to write 13 charts for 12 piece big band of tunes written in 1959. It was also Alan's year of birth!
