featuring Catherine Russell, Charenee Wade, and Brianna Thomas

“All three women found nooks and crannies in the material that you might not have known were there.”
—The Nation

Jazz diva Catherine Russell, a staple at Jazz at Lincoln Center, is joined by vocalists Brianna Thomas and Charenee Wade to pay impassioned tribute to the great female blues singers of the 1920s: Bessie Smith, Mamie Smith, Ma Rainey, and Ethel Waters. Backed by a seven-piece band, led by pianist Mark Shane, the trio delves into the catalog of 1920s and 30s legends Ma Rainey and Bessie Smith, backed by a seven-piece band.
