"Pee Wee and Me: Lepage has created a sweet and slighly skewed homage to the legendarily idiosyncretic American clarinettist Pee Wee Russell. Each and every blues of this suite are an affectionate tribute to the great swing player. Deeply troubled clarinetist Pee Wee Russell rose to fame through the 1930's and into the 1950's where his musicianship was on par with leading jazz players of that time."-Ambiance Magnetiques
