Entertainment Reviews:

Down Beat - p.61
3.5 stars out of 5 -- "The almost ethereal sound of his clarinet -- woody, tart and lyrical -- is a revelation."


Product Description:

Compilation producer: Steve Hoffman.
Recorded at Beltone Recording Studios, New York on February 18-19, 1958. Originally released on Counterpoint (CPST-562). Includes liner notes by Charles Edward Smith.
Personnel: Pee Wee Russell (clarinet); Bud Freeman (saxophone); Ruby Braff (trumpet); Nat Pierce (piano).
Issued originally on Counterpoint and reissued many times since by budget labels like Everest, this CD version has superior sound. From 1958, this set matches the great clarinetist Pee Wee Pussell with an all-star horn section (trumpeter Ruby Braff, trombonist Vic Dickenson and tenor-saxophonist Bud Freeman) on a program of swing standards along with "Pee Wee Blues." Russell, a bit weary of playing Dixieland by this time, was starting to look toward more modern eras of music, although in reality his own playing was always beyond categorization. ~ Scott Yanow
