Fidgety Feet

Another one I grabbed for the Chick Bullock vocals (1-3). On the first four tracks with the Vic Berton Orchestra, Russell doubles on tenor sax. The six sides from Nick's were on a small label sold exlusively at Nick's club. From Allmusic.com: A professional by the time he was 15, Pee Wee Russell played in Texas with Peck Kelley's group (meeting Jack Teagarden) and then in 1925 he was in St. Louis jamming with Bix Beiderbecke. Russell moved to New York in 1927 and gained some attention for his playing with Red Nichols' Five Pennies. Russell freelanced during the era, making some notable records with Billy Banks in 1932 that matched him with Red Allen. He played clarinet and tenor with Louis Prima during 1935-1937, appearing on many records and enjoying the association. After leaving Prima, he started working with Eddie Condon's freewheeling groups and would remain in Condon's orbit on and off for the next 30 years. Enjoy. +
