This video is about the recording period of Pee Wee Ellis during the 1970’s in New York. After he had left James Brown and before he joined Van Morrison. You will be introduced to the albums of Pee Wee Ellis with Esther Phillips, George Benson, Sonny Stitt, Brother Jack McDuff, The Blues Magoos and many more. Also an album from Pee Wee’s own label SMOKE HOUSE RECORDS was added to this movie. The film was produced one year ago when Pee Wee Ellis & Ian Shaw talked about this interesting period at the BLUES & JAZZ FESTIVAL in Bristol, in March 2019. For the first time we now bring this video to the public. Enjoy!
