Russell is a rare talent, genuine jazz and blues vocalist who can sing virtually anything. Her voice is full-blown femininity incarnate: a dusky, stalwart and soulful instrument that radiates interpretive power yet remains touchingly vulnerable. She launches fearlessly into each tune, getting inside the melody and capturing every emotion. Her repertoire features gems from the 1920s through the present–vital interpretations, bursting with soul and humor. With an off-the-beaten-path song selection, sparkling acoustic swing, and a stunning vocal approach, Russell joins the ranks of the greatest interpreters and performers of American Popular Song.
