Catherine Russell's name may not be as well known as many of the people she has worked for through the years, but Levon Helm, Paul Simon, Michael Feinstein, Jackson Browne, Steely Dan, and David Bowie, have all benefited from her smoky vocal artistry. The daughter of jazz legend Luis Russell (Louis Armstrong's musical director), and bassist/vocalist Carline Ray (International Sweethearts of Rhythm, Mary Lou Williams), Russell has been gradually conquering the music world since the release of her 2006 debut album, Cat. She was voted Vocalist of the Year in the 2008 and 2010 Village Voice Jazz Critics Polls. Her latest CD, Strictly Romancin', is a tour de force of scintillating jazz and blues.
