Acheté en version 33t.

C'est un coup tordu qui date de l'éditeur d'origine, Pacific Jazz, en 1956: c'est la reprise, en inversant les faces et en changeant le titre el l'illustration de "playboys". Ces éditions émanent, sous 2 labels différents, d'une boîte espagnole spécialisée dans la reprise de disques tombés dans le domaine public... et qui reprend par la même occasion une entourloupe elle aussi vintage! Sur le plan sonore, les 2 se valent. Prenez la moins chère.

A sleeper in the Chet discography, but EXCELLENT! 18 novembre 2004
Par Jack Dempsey - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
That pretty much sums up this short little release. Those who have been around for a while or who are in the know somewhat may remember this session from its original Captiol records release called "PLAYBOYS." That release, if I do say so myself, possessed a far, far, far (and I cannot stress this enough, FAR) superior cover/artwork. Definitely look into getting yourself a copy, though they are very scarce and very much out of print these days (but, as always, very much worth the search).

Solid, smooth, typical west-coast vibe. It's fluid all the way around and beautiful as the day is long. As the reviewer below me indicated, it's perfect for virtually every time of day, night, season or what have you.

I don't know why this doesn't get more recognition, but with some of the other releases in Chet's arsenal, it's hardly surprising. Still, this comes off as one of his finer Pacific Jazz releases short of his Russ Freeman ventures. And it's definitely worth owning, if not for the Chet factor, for Art Pepper's contributions alone.

Get this while you can. You will definitely treasure it and I sense you will regard it as a valuable addition to your collection.

Great Chet it's good 28 juillet 1999
Par Mark Bourne - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
Granted this may not be considered a jazz staple, but I can't seem to stop listening. It's jazz for the summer, or winter, or anytime other than a rainy day.
Continually upbeat, surprisingly inventive for this victim of fashion, it's strong from start to finish. Picture of Health is also special for the sheer fact that, while a great listen, it does not require attention.
So, give Chet a chance, you'll like it.

Five stars for Perkins on piano and historical value 16 novembre 2015
Par Mike Tarrani - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Album vinyle
One of the reasons to purchase this album - aside from being a Chet Baker and/or Art Pepper fan - is this album represents the only tracks they recorded together. The other is Carl Perkins on piano who did not leave behind a large legacy of recorded work. If you are new to jazz, he is NOT the rockabilly guitarist, but one of the finest pianists of the era.

The music is hard bop with a distinct West Coast flavor. Although the tracks sound like a jam session at Howard Rumsey's Lighthouse this is a studio album that was recorded at the Radio Recorders studio in Los Angeles on October 31, 1956. Baker and Pepper are accompanied by Phil Urso on tenor sax and backed by Carl Perkins on piano, Curtis Counce on bass and Lawrence Marable on drums.

Normally I prefer Chet accompanied by a baritone sax because that instrument is a perfect complement to his penchant for playing in lower registers. However, there is something compelling about Chet and Art Pepper's alto sax. To be honest I cannot put my finger on it. Perhaps it's not just a lower register instrument, but an Eb one that seems to go with Baker's trumpet.

There is nothing Earth-shattering about the actual music other than it is rock solid and has moments of genius. Those moments are followed by levels of performance that you would expect from such an ensemble of luminaries, but nothing seminal. That said, this is still a nice listen and had it not been for the Baker-Pepper pairing and Perkins in the mix I would probably have rated it four stars.

Were it a picture of health: the story of a storied album 22 juillet 2006
Par Samuel Chell - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD Achat vérifié
The bottom line: six original tunes orchestrated and executed beautifully by the three-horn front-line and supported by a state-of-the-art rhythm section (you just can't do better than Carl Perkins and Curtis Counce). The downside: the necessary reduction of solo space, especially for Perkins' piano, and a sense of sameness in the arrangements.

The photo makes it clear that Chet, looking blase as the only seated member of the horn section, has the least interest in the proceedings. What's less clear is how even a "natural" such as Chet, who was renowned for not being able to read music, could handle intricate arrangements such as these. (Certainly the picture of Chet "reading" music, albeit in a seated position, belies much received wisdom about his musical literacy.0 Moreover, Chet and Pepper--two of the most identifiable and expressive voices in jazz--sound like "merely" proficient players on this occasion. Chet employs an uncharacteristically extrovertish, brassy sound, and Art negotiates chord changes as he did in the Kenton big band. The album at least reveals the scarce-recorded Phil Urso to have been a player capable of rising to practically the same level as his two celebrated peers. Of the tunes, Heath's "For Minors Only" is the only one that caught on as a jazz standard (a "minor" one)

Musically, this could have been a five-star session with the subtraction of one, possibly even two, of the horn players. I'd love to see Chet's horn being placed to the fire, bringing some earnest sweat to his brow, and this is a rhythm section made for the part.

Of almost as much interest as the music is the story of the album itself. As Jimmy Heath himself has stated in interviews and in a recent autobiography, all of the tunes were smuggled out of prison by Jimmy (at this time known as "Little Bird" among musicians). Initially it was issued with a "sexy" cover and the title "Playboys," with only the names of Chet Baker and Art Pepper appearing on the cover. Hugh Hefner's estate refused to give the necessary permission, and so the album never saw release as an LP! Instead it was issued in the present format--"A Picture of Heath"--in the 1990s. Then only recent in the present millennium the album was again released, this time as originally intended: "Playboys," under the co-leadership of Baker and Pepper.

Finally, there's no small amount of irony that this tribute to a "master," Jimmy Heath, would come from four ill-starred musicians who left us 25 to 45 years ago while Jimmy is still going strong in 2006. Four of the six musicians producing a "Picture of Heath" were themselves apparently anything but a "picture of health," physically or mentally. (The fifth, the under-sung Phil Urso, passed away just several years ago in the new millennium.)
One too many tunes 14 juin 2014
Par John M. - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
7 tunes - 5 by Jimmy Heath, who's hitherto brief recording career was in limbo at the time of this 1956 recording, and 2 by Art Pepper. Jimmy's composing and arranging talents probably came to the attention of West Coast jazz people thru fellow Philadelphian Bobby Timmons who played in Baker's quintet with Phil Urso.

The horn soloing on this session is a bit short from what we have come to expect based on later recordings, time being taken out for a occaisional bass solo and trading of fours. The solos are effective though and need not be catagorized as strictly cool.

The other Chet Baker Art Pepper sextet session is THE ROUTE with Richie Kamuca on tenor sax instead of Urso.

Jimmy Heath began recording again, as side man and a leader, in 1960 for Riverside records in New York
