Art Pepper + Eleven – Modern Jazz Classics is a 1959 jazz big band album by saxophonist Art Pepper performing under the direction and arrangements of Marty Paich. The recording is one of several dates Pepper made with Paich and his big band in 1959 and is the only one with Pepper as leader. The recording focuses on big band arrangements of modern jazz classics by Marty Paich, including Denzil Best's "Move," Thelonious Monk's "’Round Midnight," Gerry Mulligan's "Walkin' Shoes". Highlights of the recording are Pepper's clarinet performances on "Anthropology" and the alternate takes of "Walkin'."
