Art of Jazz: Catherine Russell


“One of the outstanding singers of our time” (Wall Street Journal), Grammy-winning vocalist Catherine Russell is the rarest of entities – a genuine jazz and blues vocalist who puts her joyful stamp on the great African American songbook from the Swing Era and beyond. The daughter of Luis Russell, pianist and music director for the immortal Louis Armstrong, Catherine has toured around the world as a featured performer with Steely Dan, Paul Simon, and David Bowie and been awarded the prestigious Prix Du Jazz Vocal by the French Jazz Academy.
