In Love With Night – 1978
Baritonist Adams plays an original with power and passion
One of the greatest baritone-saxophonists in jazz history, Pepper Adams spent much of his career overshadowed by the popular Gerry Mulligan.
While Mulligan had a light tone and a floating style, Adams had a more guttural sound and a style that tended to explore the lower register of the baritone, in time he became quite influential on the baritonists who followed.
The picture might be dark but the music comes across loud and clear with Pepper Adams heard in top form.
