(January 25, 2017): Art Pepper – Bernie’s Tune

From the 1959 album, Art Pepper + Eleven.  This album is a collection of classic covers. Pepper was a West Coaster who cut his teeth playing with Benny Carter’s band. Bernie’s Tune was written in 1953 by Bernie Miller (with lyrics later added by Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller). It was popularized by Gerry Mulligan 1954. Gene Krupa and Buddy Rich jammed on it in ’55. And it has been covered countless times since.
