Description
Completely and utterly enchanting, Bring It Back is already on our shortlist for the best jazz vocal release of 2014. Catherine Russell's father, Luis, was a bandleader, composer, and long-time musical director for Louis Armstrong. Her mother, Carline Ray, was a bassist, guitarist, and vocalist who performed with The International Sweethearts of Rhythm. So Russell has the genes, the chops, the taste—and the je ne sais quoi. With her 10-piece band, she takes us from the earliest days of jazz through the swing era and into the R&B explosion.

"One of the best jazz and blues singers around."—Terri Gross, Fresh Air

"The disc's true center is the first full performance of Russell's father's composition, 'Lucille,' which was recently found in the Louis Armstrong archives…. It is a shimmering ballad that migrates into a Count Basie riff-fest. Russell addresses the slow blues in 'After the Lights Go Down Low' complete with Glenn Patscha's Hammond and Matt Munisteri's thin, metallic guitar fills raise the song above gutbucket into the Chittlin' Circuit realm. 'I'm Sticking to You Baby' is a Henry Glover jump blues. Perfectly wedged in is Fats Waller's 'Strange as It Seems' and the Koehler/Arlen hidden swing treasure, 'Public Melody Number One.'"—All About Jazz

"After decades as one of the strongest and most versatile backup singers in pop and rock (Steely Dan, Jackson Browne and Paul Simon), Catherine Russell has established herself as a premier interpreter of classic 20th-century jazz, blues and r&b.... On Bring It Back she reinvigorates songs from three eras—the Jazz Age, the Swing Era and the r&b era—with equal fervor, accompanied by a sparkling tentet that transforms the tunes from museum pieces into modern-sounding vehicles for jazz expression. The album is dedicated to her famous parents: pianist-bandleader Luis Russell, who served as musical director to Louis Armstrong, and singer-bassist Carline Ray, an original member of the pioneering International Sweethearts of Rhythm. It's unlikely that there will be a sexier jazz vocal performance this year than Russell's rendition of 'Aged And Mellow,' the 1952 Johnny Otis gem, unless it's her smoldering delivery of 'After The Lights Go Down Low.' On Bring It Back, Catherine Russell turns in her most fully realized vocal performances to date—by turns, sassy, sexy, humorous, reflective and joyous."—Allen Morrison
