Catherine Russell



This is the debut album for this jazz vocalist. With both her father (Luis Russell – Louis Armstrong’s long-tie music director) and mother (Carline Ray – bassist and vocalist) working with some of the biggest names in jazz and blues, Catherine was raised in the scene and it shows within her variety of jazz and country blues tunes. For some smooth jazz tunes give #1 “Sad Lover Blues” and #9 “Back O Town Blues” a try. Also take some time to listen to her cover of Louis Jordan on #8 “Juneteenth Jamboree”.
