This short video is a glimpse at a longer video artwork based on the stories in Straight Life: the Story of Art Pepper by Art and Laurie Pepper. That short movie is a work in progress. It includes a number of jazz performances from all the stages of Art's career, and Art Pepper's voice (as recorded by Laurie Pepper when she interviewed him for Straight Life) provides the narration. The enacted sequences feature James Intveld and Lisa Joffrey as Art and his wife Diane. Laurie is played by Tracy Middendorf.
