In Studio: Catherine Russell (Encore)

This week, we have the pleasure of sharing a recent interview that Jay Daniels did with Grammy-nominated vocalist Catherine Russell. In 2019, she released the “Alone Together” from Dot Time Records. For many, Catherine Russell is no stranger to the music industry. While working currently as a soloist, she is also well known for her work with artists like Steely Dan, Cyndi Lauper, and David Bowie. Special thanks to Cydney Halpin and the New Jersey Jazz Society for hosting this special meeting.
