" . . . a wonderfully eclectic set of tunes including "Back O Town Blues" which her dad Luis Russell wrote with Louis Armstrong." -- Lee Hildebrand, San Francisco Bay Guardian (Best of 2006)

"She has an infectiousness that not only spurs the band on but also grabs the listener by the ear." -- Jazz Week Magazine, April 10, 2006

"She is a fesh and original voice. Cat is the most exciting debut album I've heard in a long time." -- Will Friedwald, New York Sun

"This is one album that raises the standard for standards !" -- Johnny Meister, WXPN-FM

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't miss it.... April 14, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Catherine Russell has the all too rare ability to cut across a variety of song styles in a single recording and make them all sound cohesive, organic, smart and full of connected feelings. This disc has echos of everything from gospel to jump to blues and back through Bob Wills for good measure, yet it all makes sense. To my ears its her Sam cooke allusions that work most transcendently: "Put Me Down Easy" is pure pleasure and simple moving artistry. A great talent finally stepping out front.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Jazz Singer! January 26, 2007
Format:Audio CD
A wonderful album. There is a great variety of styles on this album, and Catherine Russell shines at every moment. The mood varies as well, and Ms. Russell is equally adept at singing torch songs, the blues, and funnier numbers - don't miss "My Man's An Undertaker, and He's Got A Coffin Just Your Size".

Get this album - you won't be disappointed.

I saw Catherine Russell at the Lotus Festival in Bloomington and immediately came home and purchased the CD at Amazon. Loved the performance and love the CD. She can do it all. Jazz, Blues, Folk, Pop. Her cover of Put Me Down Easy is the best!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great singer August 10, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
A great singer who does a ll styles, but is best at capturing old style blues, tho she is good at standards too.
She seems to be drawn to old time songs in the style of Bessie Smith and her generation of early blues recordings
