Bobby Gordon plays Pee Wee
04/11/1999
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Bobby Gordon plays mostly titles written by Russell and captures some of Russell's more mellow playing. It is enjoyable and Gordon's playing reflects some of Russell's phrasing without his "excessive tonal distortions" [quote notes], but if you were expecting the origional Pee Wee cuts, which are not easy to come by these days, you might be dissapointed.
