Catherine Russell

7:30 pm | Location: Jimmy Mak's | $20/$25

Grammy® Award-winning vocalist Catherine Russell is a native New Yorker, and a graduate of American Academy of Dramatic Arts. Russell has toured the world, performing and recording with David Bowie, Cyndi Lauper, Paul Simon, Steely Dan, Jackson Browne, Michael Feinstein, and Rosanne Cash. Her 2006 debut album Cat (World Village/Harmonia Mundi) garnered rave reviews, paving the way for the four acclaimed and chart topping albums that have followed, including Strictly Romancin’, awarded Prix du Jazz Vocal 2012 (Vocal Album of The Year) by the Jazz Academy in France and a Bistro Award for Outstanding Recording. With an off-the-beaten-path song selection, sparkling acoustic swing, and a stunning vocal approach, Catherine Russell has joined the ranks of the greatest interpreters and performers of American Popular Song.

“Her singing is drenched in emotion, drama, experience and pure swing.”The Wall Street Journal

“With a voice that wails like a horn and whispers like the snake in the Garden of Eden, she’s finally claiming her place in the pantheon of 21st-century jazz divas.” - NPR
