Pee Wee Ellis Biography (Wikipedia)

Alfred "Pee Wee" Ellis (born April 21, 1941) is an American saxophonist, composer and arranger. With a background on jazz , he was an important member of James Brown's band in the 1960s, appearing on many of Brown's most notable recordings and co-writing hits like "Cold Sweat" and "Say It Loud - I'm Black and I'm Proud". He also worked closely with Van Morrison.

In the 2014 biographical movie Get on Up about James Brown, Ellis is played by Tariq Trotter (Black Thought, MC from the Roots).

In later years, he became a resident of England, living in the town of Frome in the county of Somerset.
