At the beginning of the 1960s, he moved to the United Kingdom, where he founded the London Jazz Orchestra. He was a contributor to the Third Stream movement that tried to close the gap between jazz and classical music. He returned to his native city in 1965 where he started the Chicago Jazz Ensemble; although a few years later the ensemble was disbanded, it was reformed in 1991, and continues to this day. Russo was also well known as a trombonist and composition teacher. Among his famous pupils was the film composer John Barry.
