Pee Wee Russell was a jazz musician. Early in his career he played clarinet and saxophones, but he eventually focused solely on clarinet.

With a highly individualistic and spontaneous clarinet style that defied classification, Russell began his career playing Dixieland jazz, but throughout his career incorporated elements of newer developments such as swing, bebop and free jazz.

In the words of Philip Larkin, ”No one familiar with the characteristic excitement of his solos, their lurid, snuffling, asthmatic voicelessness, notes leant on till they split, and sudden passionate intensities, could deny the uniqueness of his contribution to jazz”.

Pee Wee Russell

Charles Ellsworth Russell; 27 martie 1906, Maplewood, Missouri – 15 februarie 1969, Muskogee, Oklahoma

 

Pee Wee Russell a fost un muzician de jazz. La începutul carierei sale a cântat și la clarinet și la saxofon, dar în cele din urmă s-a concentrat doar pe clarinet.

Cu un stil de clarinet extrem de individual și spontan care a sfidat clasificarea, Russell și-a început cariera interpretând jazz Dixieland, de-a lungul carierei sale încorporând elemente noi, ca swing, bebop și free jazz.
