The Way It Was! is an album by jazz alto saxophonist Art Pepper and tenor saxophonist Warne Marsh. It was recorded in 1956 but not released on the Contemporary label in Japan until 1986. 

There are great jazz musicians. And then there are great pairings of great jazz musicians. Some of these pairings you know, some may be less familiar. A duo in the latter category was West Coast alto saxophonist Art Pepper and New York tenor saxophonist Warne Marsh. On the recordings by these two players, you get two artists who personified a cooler, drier sound on the reed instrument. By cooler and drier, I mean smooth, no vibrato, relaxed and behind the beat.
