Pee Wee Hunt was one of the trombonists in the post-Bix Jean Goldkette orchestra in 1928-early 1929. According to Billboard, Aug 8, 1952, <em>"He [Pee Wee] began playing trombone, on Bix Beiderbecke's recommendation, in Jean Goldkette's great band of the middle twenties." </em>Really, more like the late 1920s. The story is repeated in the News Sentinel (Rochester IN) of Jul 29, 1953: <em>"He joined Jean Goldkette's band on the recommenation of Bix Biderbecke [sic]."</em>

I know about the attempt of Bix to play with the Casa Loma orchestra (Pee Wee was trombonist) in May 1931. I did not know that Pee Wee and Bix knew each other in 1928. Anyone?
