Product Description:

Personnel: Pee Wee Russell (clarinet); Marshal Brown (trombone); Russell George (bass); Ron Lundberg (drums).
Recorded in New York, New York in 1962. Originally released on Columbia (8785). Includes liner notes by Charles Edward Smith.
In 1962, clarinetist Pee Wee Russell, who was closely associated with Dixieland and Eddie Condon even though he had a highly original style, began teaming up with valve trombonist/bass trumpeter Marshall Brown in more modern settings. Utilizing a pianoless quartet, Russell performed music that was a little reminiscent of Gerry Mulligan and often incorporated surprisingly modern songs. The musical partnership lasted for two albums, of which New Groove (originally recorded for Columbia) was the first. On this intriguing set, Russell, Brown, bassist Russell George, and drummer Ron Lundberg perform such songs as "Chelsea Bridge," "Moten Swing," "Good Bait," "'Round Midnight," and even John Coltrane's "Red Planet." Although their follow-up project for Impulse is more classic, this is a particularly intriguing set, with Russell and Brown making for a mutually compatible team. ~ Scott Yanow

Rating 4.5 How a traditionalist can play avanguard Music Lover: from Milano, Milano IT -- May, 30, 2008

In this 1963 record Pee Wee Russell, usually referred as a dixieland representative and a traditionalist, is challenging himself in playing compositions written from avanguardists like John Coltrane/Eric Dolphy or Thelonious Monk.
The result is outstanding, with an unusual ensemble (clarinet, trombone, bass, drums) that sounds very modern and harmonically free (no piano or guitar) closer to Jimmy Giuffre than to Dixieland. The excellent sound from Collectables Records makes this CD a precious and delightful piece for any jazz lover.
