Gary Carner is the editor of The Miles Davis Companion. He lives in Salt Lake City, Utah.
"Gary Carner's loving tribute to Pepper Adams finally delivers some
justice to the man and to the whole range and span of his too short
and underappreciated but brilliant career." — Ben Sidran, author of
Talking Jazz: An Oral History
"Having known and worked with Pepper from 1955 until he left us, reading this biography makes you feel that you are there with him. His humor, wit, and devotion to music are all written about in a way that Pepper himself would have loved. Gary Carner has kept this story real." — David Amram, author of Vibrations: The Adventures and Musical Times of David Amram
