September 1997 - August 16, 1998

This is not a catalog. This is a discographical tool for researchers. I have no idea how to obtain these records.

An issue of Art Pepper With Warne Marsh as 9001 is an anomaly. Chuck Nessa says:

"The first issue of any of the Pepper/Marsh material was The Way It Was. I spoke to Lester Koenig, Art Pepper and Warne Marsh about this date. In 1986 Ed Michel prepared a limited edition Complete Contemporary Art Pepper for JVC in Japan. This was issued as a box, and single discs. The Pepper/Marsh disc had all seven titles and three alternates from this date. The JVC CD is VDJ-1577. The French CD [French Carrère 98.646] is a reissue of the JVC. The JVC booklet cover shows S-9001, but the logo/typography is of a later design (1970's) than the known issued 9000's (9004, 9005 & 9006)."
