Overview

Pee Wee Speaks: A Discography of Pee Wee Russell by Robert Hilbert, David Niven

Great changes occurred on the jazz scene during Charles Ellsworth 'Pee Wee' Russell, Jr's four-decade recording career, and Pee Wee was always ahead of his contemporaries. Beginning with the previously undocumented first recording session of 16-year-old Russell in 1922, and ending in 1968 with a Mississippi riverboat party shortly before his death, this discography includes all his known commercial recordings worldwide as well as much new information on film soundtracks, private recordings, broadcasts, and concerts. Pee Wee's lengthy recording career spanned sessions with jazz greats from Bix Beiderbecke to Thelonious Monk.
