Grammy Winner Catherine Russell to Perform at COS-SJCC Nov. 15

Catherine Russell's most recent album, Bring It Back, was released last February,
SUMMIT, NJ - Grammy Award-winning, internationally-acclaimed Jazz Vocalist Catherine Russell will perform November 15 at Congregation Ohr Shalom - Summit Jewish Community Center (COS / SJCC).
The concert will begin at 8:30 p.m., with a cocktail hour, included with admission, preceding the concert at 7:30 p.m.

Russell’s exquisite voice has been heard on three continents, and locally at Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center.  Born into a family steeped in music, Russell's legacy goes back to her father, Louis Russell, long-time collaborator and director for Louis Armstrong.

Her diverse repertoire encompasses some of the most treasured songs in American Jazz, Blues, and Swing heritage.  A storyteller through melody, rhythm, and lyrics, Russell captivates her audience, magically transforming the experience of the listener.

Through it all, she makes the most of what National Public Radio calls, "a voice that wails like a horn, and whispers like a snake in the Garden of Eden."  The Wall Street Journal raved about Russell, stating, “Her singing is drenched in emotion, drama, experience and pure swing.” 

With her recent album, Bring It Back, released last February, Russell has pushed her remarkable run of solo work to new heights, building on her already-considerable renown as one of the foremost interpreters and explorers of mid-20th century American music. 

Advanced ticket purchase is recommended, with General Admission priced at $25 adults / $18 students, if purchased by November 12 on-line at, or by sending a check to COS-SJCC, Attention: Jazz at the SJCC.
Preferred seating is also available at .  Tickets at the door will be priced at $36 adults / $20 students, space permitting.  For additional information, contact .

Congregation Ohr Shalom - SJCC is located at 67 Kent Place Boulevard.
