Pee Wee Ellis at Arts Garage Oct 1
(Published: September 26, 2016)

October 1 at 8 PM: The Arts Garage presents the legendary tenor saxophonist Pee Wee Ellis. Ellis is a well-known American musician who was an essential part of James Brown's band in 1960s and its musical director. A student of Sonny Rollins, he is a saxophonist, arranger and composer. Music, particularly jazz, is his passion. In 1965, he started working with James Brown and became a part of some hit projects like "Cold Sweat", "Mother Popcorn", "Lickin' Stick," and "The Chicken" in a short period of 4 years. Subsequently he worked with artists like George Benson, Hank Crawford, Esther Phillips, and David Liebman. He later worked with Van Morrison's band as arranger and music director and fully deserves the credit for major hits of that time. His song with James Brown, "Say It Loud: I'm Black and I'm Proud", is a source of inspiration for all black people, and truly expresses their mind and heart. The song reflects his self-respect and truly reflects the political and social awakening that started during that time that led them to fight for their basic rights.
