John Pizzarelli Trio with Catherine Russell present: “Billie & Blue Eyes”

Grammy Award-winning vocalist Catherine Russell teams up with jazz guitarist, vocalist and bandleader John Pizzarelli in a stunning tribute to Billie Holiday and Frank Sinatra.

World-renowned guitarist and singer John Pizzarelli, hailed by The Boston Globe for “reinvigorating the Great American Songbook and re-popularizing jazz,” has established himself as one of the prime interpreters of the American standards and beyond. Acclaimed vocalist Catherine Russell was born into jazz, as the daughter of Luis Russell, long-time musical director to Louis Armstrong, and pioneering jazz guitarist and vocalist Carline Ray. She has since toured the world and has many decorated albums to her credit. The two join forces for their return to SMF in their first collaboration. This unforgettable program will feature soulful interpretations of chart-topping classics like “All of Me,” “God Bless the Child,” “Witchcraft” and “One More for My Baby.” Instead of stepping back in time to reenact the work of Billie Holiday and Frank Sinatra, Russell and Pizzarelli pull the music gracefully into the present, and do it all with their signature panache.
