Catherine Russell & John Pizzarelli
A Salute to Billie Holiday & Frank Sinatra

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. Russell and Pizzarelli transport audiences to the glory days of jazz with masterful ease, capturing Holiday’s effortless grace and Sinatra’s cool swagger. Although this tour marks the duo’s first time together, they are no strangers to epic collaborations. In fact, Russell toured with David Bowie before going solo, and Pizzarelli has worked with everyone from the Boston Pops Orchestra to Paul McCartney. Don’t miss the best jazz performers of today covering the jazz legends of yesterday.

  • Along with his wife, Jessica Molaskey, Pizzarelli co-hosts the nationally syndicated Radio Deluxe every week.
  • Jazz is in Russell’s blood; her father was Louis Armstrong's longtime musical director.
  • In April 2016, Russell sang the grand finale of the 2016 NEA Jazz Masters Award Ceremony at the Kennedy Center.

This concert will run approximately 90 minutes with no intermission.
