"This is a tribute album to Pee Wee Russell and to the music that he wrote, which undeservedly has fallen into obscurity, as well as to the late Bob Hilbert, whose book Pee Wee Russell: The Life of a Jazzman, was the inspiration for this recording. Featured is Bobby Gordon, whose special insight into Russell's playing has captured its subtle nuances of sound and phrasing, far beyond mere imitation, and made him uniquely qualified to do justice to this most original of players."

Selected by Dick Neeld as a 1996 Writers Choice in the January/February 1997 issue of Coda.
