joins The Jim Cullum Jazz Band with frequent guest artist Dick Hyman on piano, at the historic Pearl Stable in San Antonio. They present a selection of songs from Catherine's recent CDs. Catherine talks about her beginnings as the daughter of a pioneering woman of jazz, to what she looks for in choosing songs and how she feels the spirit of her father in her music.
Long before launching her own solo career in jazz, Catherine Russell was a first-call" backup singer—working with artists in just about every genre of music from pop to rock, from blues to country. Ms. Russell has performed or recorded with an impressive array of trend-setting artists, including Rosanne Cash, Cyndi Lauper, Michael Feinstein, Madonna, Al Green and Isaac Hayes. At heart, she is a genuine jazz and blues singer.
