Elemental Music will release Art Pepper Live at Fat Tuesday's, on Nov. 20.

The set, from April 1981, features five extended performances at the New York venue, with the alto saxophonist Pepper joined by a rhythm section composed of pianist Milcho Leviev, bassist George Mraz and drummer Al Foster.

The package contains a 40-page booklet that includes historian and author Brian Priestley's 1980 interview with Pepper; an essay by French music scholar and journalist Stéphane Ollivier; producer Zev Feldman's interview with Pepper's widow, Laurie Pepper; a personal recollection by producer John Koenig; and a first-person account by Fat Tuesday's general manager, Steve Getz, of Pepper's engagement at the club, as well as previously unpublished photographs by Laurie Pepper. The set will be available on CD and digital download.
