Back by popular demand, Catherine Russell was a crowd favorite for the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra: Big Band Holiday show in 2017. This singer’s booming, brassy vocal power and honeyed smoothness is sure to be an absolute treat for the UpStage series. Before launching her remarkable solo career, Russell excelled as a backup singer and multi-instrumentalist with artists including David Bowie, Steely Dan, Cyndi Lauper, and Paul Simon. Descended from musical royalty, she draws inspiration from her jazz pioneer mother, Carline Ray, and longtime Louis Armstrong bandleader father, Luis Russell.
