Catherine Russell and John Pizzarelli, two premier interpreters of jazz standards and “The Great American Songbook”, return for the Holiday Season with a program that continues their tribute to Billie Holiday and Frank Sinatra.


Date:            Saturday, Saturday, December 14, 2019

Time:           7:00PM in the Upper Lobby for cocktails / 8:00PM Performance

Place:            Berlind Theater at McCarter Theater Center, 91 University Place, Princeton, NJ


CATHERINE RUSSELL is that rarest of entities, a genuine jazz and blues singer, who can sing virtually anything. Her voice is a dusky, stalwart, and soulful instrument that radiates interpretive power yet remains touchingly vulnerable. CLICK HERE TO GO TO HER WEBSITE!


JOHN PIZZARELLI has been hailed by the Boston Globe for “reinvigorating the Great American Songbook and re-popularizing jazz” and the Seattle Times saluted him as “a rare entertainer of the old school.”  CLICK HERE TO GO TO HIS WEBSITE!
