Pee Wee Russell Stomp on March 1

The New Jersey Jazz Society maintains the memory of clarinetist Pee Wee Russell (here's a clip of him playing in 1958: with scholarships for student musicians at Rutgers, funded by the group's annual Pee Wee Russell Stomp.
This year's event will be held from noon to 5 p.m. March 1 at the Birchwood Manor, 111 North Jefferson Road, Whippany -- a bit of a hike, but one worth the trip: the day's entertainment includes Vince Giordano and the Nighthawks, Danny Tobias Quintet, Dan Levinson and His Swing Wing, and the Warren Vaché Trio.
You can get more informaton about the Stomp -- and about the New Jersey Jazz Society -- at (There's a great shot of Vince Giordano wailing on a bari sax on the page!)
