The Baltimore Chamber Jazz Society hosts recent Grammy nominated jazz vocalist Catherine Russell in concert Sunday, March 1, 2020. With her recent GRAMMY nomination for Best Jazz Vocal Album, Alone Together, Russell solidifies her reputation as one of the greatest interpreters and performers of American Popular Song. She is a rare talent, a genuine jazz and blues vocalist who can sing virtually anything. Her repertoire features gems from the 1920s through the present—vital interpretations, bursting with soul and humor.
According to JazzWeek, which announced Russell’s recent album was #1 on its 2019 Year End Jazz Chart, “Alone Together offers a welcome reminder that there’s no one else in jazz doing what [Catherine] does, and that the scene would be immeasurably poorer without her."
Russell will be accompanied by Mark Shane on piano, Jon-Erik Kellso on trumpet, Tal Ronen on bass, and Mark McLean on drums.
