The juxtaposition of Art Pepper's searing but beautifully melodic saxophone(s) with strings only happened near the end of Pepper's career (and life), but seems perfect and inevitable. Pepper was probably in better health for this record than any other since the late 50s, and this enables him to produce wonderful, complete improvised lines. The first track, "Our Song," is worth the price by itself.

This is a classic album..one of the most moving, penetrating and down right mellow projects of Pepper's career. He was always talented, but this CD will put you in such a mellow, laidback mode, you'll wonder why you left it out of your collection all these years! I challenge anyone not to be moved and stirred by the tune "prisoner (Theme from the Eyes of Laura Mars)." It is so rich in texture and sound, it feels like the Earth is standing still and you're rotating around it...and "Winter Moon" just lifts you up and swaddles you in soft, melodic bliss! Plus, he gives you other chilled songs that will stir the sentimental dust lying dormant in your soul! Another favorite of mine "Our Song", it is so divine, I put it on repeat, always! Can't hear it just once!

I listen to this CD during long drives to no where in the Spring, lounging on the patio in the Summer, relaxing by the fireplace in the Winter or writing prose on a Sunday morning in the Fall! Since it is musical poetry, it always inspires me for it is indeed music for all seasons.

I had never heard of Art Pepper until I read about him in one of Michael Connelly's novels. The main character, Harry Bosch, a homicide detective in Los Angeles, lives in the Hollywood Hills and there are many occasions in his books about Bosch where the author talks about him coming home late at night and playing his collection of jazz CD's. One of them is Art Pepper. So I ordered this particular CD and I love it! It is one of the best collection of jazz by a Sax player I have ever listened to. Maybe on a par with the great John Coltrane! There is a beautiful orchestra behind him with beautiful strings. I can just picture the character Harry Bosch sitting on his balcony overlooking the Hollywood Freeway late at night with this CD playing in the background and drinking a glass of wine. In fact I am playing this CD as I drink a glass of wine as the sun is setting! Perfect! For all jazz fans - especially those who like the Sax - get this CD! You will never regret it.

This album is deeply beautiful. The first notes of Art Pepper's saxophone on the first cut, "Our Song," sinks into the marrow of my bones. I may not know Art Pepper, but I know he knows my grief. I thank God for giving us Art Pepper and this music. For me, it's a very personal healing experience.

How melodic can an alto saxophonist be? Listen to this effort and you'll have learned plenty. Pay special attention to "The Prisoner;" it's the ultimate lesson. If this album doesn't move you and make you appreciate how brilliant Art Pepper could be, you're probably too heavily into salt (pun intended). Supremely supportive of Pepper are the strings, which add more than a dimension; they shade and meld but don't jump out at you so as to say "there are also strings on this album so pay attention to us as well as Art." Finally, Stanley Cowell rarely gets much exposure. He shows here why he deserves a lot more. This is a beautiful album.

A lot of musicians have tried, but Wintermoon surpasses any string jazz recording of it's kind. Alto-sax is a difficult instrument to play but Art Pepper has always made it seem easy and he makes this recording incredibly profound, beautiful and emotional.

This is a superior album. The arrangements are soulful. Pepper's playing was never better and the studio musicians were among the best in the business. Art Pepper was a great player. If you were to own only 1 of his albums- this would be the one.

Art Pepper's genius is clear on this record. I love his lyricism. The alternate take of "The Prisoner" is my favorite track. Extremely moving.
