Jim Pepper

Jim Pepper will always be best remembered for his popular recording of "Witchi-Tai-To," a peyote chant put to music. Pepper, who is definitively profiled in the hour-long documentary Pepper's Pow Wow (available on video), infused advanced jazz with the influence of his Native American heritage. The son of a father who also played saxophone, Pepper early in life loved to tap dance. He largely taught himself both tenor and clarinet, developing a soulful sound and keeping his style open to both free expression and the influence of world music. Pepper grew up in Oklahoma and moved to New York in the mid-'60s. He was a major part of one of the first fusion groups, Free Spirits, which made a record for ABC/Paramount in 1967. Pepper, who played in the "Everything Is Everything" band in the late '60s, was encouraged by Ornette Coleman and Don Cherry to put more of his heritage into his music. Jim Pepper worked with Cherry, Dewey Redman, Charlie Haden's Liberation Music Orchestra, and his own bands. He recorded with Paul Motian and Bob Moses, and led a session apiece for Europa (1984) and Enja (1987). Pepper passed away at the age of 50 from lymphoma. ~ Scott Yanow, Rovi

Not sure why there's a picture of The Path but they only have Pepper's Pow wow. Comin' and Goin' and The Patch would be great to have on here. Sort of like not having Don Cherry's Multikulti, would be nice to play up to their strengths more.

I chatted with Jim Pepper a few times in the mid 80s, he was a mutual acquaintance of our neighbors and friends Collin Wolcott and Lannie Harrisin-Wol c o t t . While we had nothing in common, he seemed actually interested in me and my family; he left the impression that we could be real friends. We were really blessed by his acquaintance ! We we terribly saddened upon his passing. My heart is always warmed when I reflect on these memories.

The awsome Jim pepper was a major tallent and we lost him too soon! The Kaw and Muscogge/Cre e k Nation songs are dear to our heart!

I'm proud to say this is my cousin Jim Pepper and am happy to find his music here! I was able to spend some time with him in Portland 1 year as a teenager where I was first exposed to the Jazz Scene and his glorious music. These songs are always with me, as is his amazing smile and the twinkle in his eyes!
