    Classic Jazz from Two Originals

    This CD, a reissue of a Riverside LP, is on the short side, but offers excellent, offbeat jazz from Jack Teagarden and Pee Wee Russell. Teagarden appears with a his ''Big Eight,'' an unusual group drawing heavily on Duke Ellington's band, while Russell appears with stride piano legend J.P. Johnson and New Orleans drummer Zutty Singleton.
