This deluxe release from the classy (but long defunct) Artists House label, as with all of Art Pepper’s recordings of his comeback years, is easily recommended. Actually all of the music on So in Love has been reissued in greatly expanded form in Pepper’s massive 16-CD Galaxy box set. The original LP has lengthy versions of “So in Love,” “Stardust,” “Straight No Chaser” and two Pepper originals (“Diane” and “Blues for Blanche”). Assisted by two equally talented rhythm sections (pianists Hank Jones and George Cables, bassists Ron Carter and Charlie Haden, and drummers Al Foster and Billy Higgins), Pepper is in excellent form throughout the album, giving these songs heart-wrenching interpretations. ~~ AllMusic Review by Scott Yanow
