New York native vocalist Catherine Russell, will be the final performance of the 2011-12 season Jazz at Lincoln Center's Singers Over Manhattan series in The Allen Room, March 30-31, 2012 at 7:30pm & 9:30pm. Born of music royalty, her father, Luis Russell, was Louis Armstrong's long time musical director and her mother, Carline Ray, performed with Mary Lou Williams and International Sweethearts of Rhythm. In 2006 her hit debut album Cat, paved the way for headlining jazz festivals and opening for music legends like Steely Dan and Paul Simon. With her fourth and newest album Strictly Romancin' released on Valentine's Day and a recent GRAMMY® nomination, there is no stopping her.

Russell's repertoire will pay homage to her father and Louis Armstrong, incorporating a reinvention of jazz and swing collaborations with a ten piece orchestra including Jon-Erik Kellso (trumpet), John Allred (trombone), Andy Farber (saxophone, arranger), Dan Block (saxophone, clarinet), Matt Munisteri (guitar, banjo, Music Director), Mark Shane (piano), Lee Hudson (bass), and Mark McLean (drums). Pre-show music in the Atrium provided by Javier Nero.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
