-I have a Pee Wee Russell/Ruby Braff recording from the "Storyville" Club in
Boston at about that time: the band also features Ephie Resnick on trombone and
Kenny John (who was, briefly, with the Louis Armstrong All-Stars) on drums.

Also- the British trombonist and broadcaster Campbell Burnapp has just
completed a brilliant four-part series entitled "Mr. T from Texas". It was a
very well-informed and moving series of radio programmes about Jackson. Not
least, Jim Beebe's account of how Jackson - quite understandably - failed to
turn up for a promised "lesson" on the trombone. As Jim Beebe says, "he took
the secrets of his runs to the grave".
