Part mantra, part lamentation, part prayer, this incredible book puts us wholly in the presence of an extraordinary and brave talent, whose voice will linger in your heart and mind long after you read the last word of this book." — Edwidge Danticat, author of Claire of the Sea Light CLICK HERE TO LEARN MORE ABOUT LENELLE Books for sale provided by Wellfleet Booksmith.

Concert: Catherine Russell

Sunday, October 5th, 2014 7:30 pm
Presented by Payomet Performing Arts Center
Presented by Payomet Performing Arts Center. For tickets and info please call 508-349-5400 or visit http://www.payomet.org/event/catherine-russell   Catherine Russell is "One of the outstanding singers of our time...she continually shows how jazz, blues and the Great American Songbook are all different sides of one three-sided coin.”- Wall Street Journal Presented by Payomet Performing Arts Center. Critically-acclaimed, one-of-a-kind jazz and blues vocalist Catherine Russell‘s stalwart, soulful voice radiates interpretive power yet remains touchingly vulnerable. Influenced by her talented parents – father Luis Russell was Louis Armstrong’s musical director and mother Carline Ray a veteran jazz bassist and singer – Cat’s exposure to a variety of genres shaped her early eclectic style.  You may have seen her early in her career singing backup for such celebrated artists as Jackson Browne, Paul Simon, Rosanne Cash, David Bowie, and Madonna, and has taken the jazz world by storm since her solo debut in 2006. A hit at festivals world-wide, she has joined the ranks of the one of the greatest interpreters of American Popular Song.

Remember that name.” Last winter Cerise envisioned a show to pay tribute to the women who have inspired her and so many others like herself. The one-time show sold out twice-over at the Cultural Center in Yarmouth last February to much acclaim. Singing tunes made famous by Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday, and Sarah Vaughn, Cerise will lend her beautifully passionate and soulful interpretations to the songs many have come to know and love. She will give a short bio on the artists and pay tribute to each individual and their unique style. Cerise will be joined by former White House Navy Band drummer Phil Vitali, former Army Band pianist Chalie Jamieson, future Army Band bassist Nick Rice, and multi-instrumentalist George Machon with flute, trumpet and percussion. Join us for this magical tribute to some of the greatest women in jazz.
