As the daughter of the late Carline Ray, rhythm guitarist for the International Sweethearts of Rhythm, the first integrated all-women’s band in the U.S., and Luis Russell, longtime musical director for Louis Armstrong, music was a bit of a given for a young Catherine Russell. She went on to ply the family trade, too, singing with David Bowie, Steely Dan, Cyndi Lauper, Jackson Browne, Levon Helm, Paul Simon, Rosanne Cash, Wynton Marsalis and many others. As a solo artist with musicians like Tal Ronen, Mark Shane and Matt Munisteri — “the best trio in the land,” she told us in a 2018 interview — she’s found a niche in interpreting jazz circa the 1920s, and she brings that swing and blues expertise to cap off 2019 for the Oxford American’s Archetypes & Troubadours Series.
