Clarinetist Pee Wee Russell is one of many overlooked jazz players. Usually pigeonholed as "Dixieland" (and for good reason, in terms of the musical company he kept and the repertoire he played), he was a pure improviser in any setting he was in. He refused to play commercial big-band Swing.

John Mehegan was an American musician and music educator. A summer concert, lecture, and research tour of South Africa in 1959 was cut short because he encouraged black musicians, but while there he recorded with the group which became the Jazz Epistles, including Kippie Moeketsi, Hugh Masekela and Jonas Gwangwa.
