ON THE BACK OF THE JACKET

Pee Wee Hunt

The Blues A La Dixie

The blues were born to ease the pain of living. Pee Wee´s blues make living a joyous thing indeed.

Many changes have come upon the blues during the long, long trail that they have wound from early dixieland days to today. They´ve been romanticized, modified, dignified, and lots else. But Pee Wee Hunt plays the blues a la dixie, sticking to that early and most glorious form: two-beat style!

With his swinging group of dixielanders, Pee Wee here presents his own "treatise" on the blues, exhibiting all that idiom´s dreadth of emotion. He plays some blues of love locked out: I Gotta Right to Sing the Blues, I Get the Blues When It Rains, and Good-bye Blues.

Another leaf in his blues anthology falls in the general category of "places for revisiting": he vocalizes on Memphis and Beale Street and swings the classic St. Louis Blues. And, among the other great blues tunes, Pee Wee fits in that free and happy cure-all for any low-down mood, Swingin´ the Blues.

Some of the blues Pee Wee plays were arranged by Sid Feller; other reveal his group´s remarkable ability to conjure upcohesive "head" arrangements where, after a statement of the melody, the men in the band are on their own, developing in each chorus personal, instrumental chats about the blues.

The men playing beside Pee Wee and his eloquent trombone are Lee Cummins, clarinet; Andy Bartha, cornet; Jack Condon, piano; Gene Dragoo, bass; Bucky Pizzarelli, guitar; and Cody Sandifer, drums. Together with their leader they make a kind of music that can´t help but transport listeners to some imaginary, crowded bistro in old New Orleans, where the air is smoky, the mood is heady, and the blues are right in style.
