Catherine Russell: Mining The Depths Of The Jazz And Blues Tradition

Catherine Russell doesn’t care where or when a song gets made; if it’s got a lyric with a good story, she is all in.

Russell has a knack for finding great old tunes to sing. This session featured a couple of selection from the Billie Holiday songbook (“Swing! Brother, Swing”, “You’re My Thrill”) and a very risqué blues song from the 1920s (“You’ve Got the Right Key, but the Wrong Keyhole”).

Charming and at ease, with a swinging backup band, Ms. Russell takes the past and brings it to life, here and now.
