Bethany Jazz Vespers: Catherine Russell

The Bethany Jazz Vespers series presents this FREE concert featuring GRAMMY Award-winning jazz vocalist Catherine Russell, who earned a 2017 GRAMMY nod for her latest (and seventh) solo album, Harlem on My Mind.

Since the release of her debut solo LP, 2006’s Cat, Catherine Russell has been one of the most acclaimed vocalists on the contemporary jazz scene. This always soulful jazz and blues specialist is widely recognized as one of today’s top interpreters of American Popular Song, known for her off-the-beaten-path song selection, her stunning vocal approach, and a sparkling acoustic swing.

“Catherine Russell’s triumph is her natural, unforced way with a song, and the personal touch she brings to it,” says The Los Angeles Times. “She virtually stands alone on today’s jazz landscape.” According to Downbeat, “Russell inhabits vintage tunes so plausibly they seem simultaneously old and new, thanks to the clarity and theatricality of her delivery.”

This free event is presented by Bethany Jazz Vespers and NJPAC.
