Catherine Russell and the John Pizzarelli Quartet: Billie and Blue Eyes

Catherine Russell and John Pizzarelli salute Billie Holiday and Frank Sinatra in Billie and Blue Eyes. Relive the glory days of jazz with these two iconic voices. Enjoy titles from Billie Holiday including All of Me, What a Little Moonlight Will Do, Them There Eyes and I Cover the Waterfront. Selections from Sinatra include Witchcraft, Wee Small Hours, I Thought About You and One More for my Baby.

Both artists descend from musical royalty. The Grammy-winning Russell has six decorated albums to her credit. Pizzarelli, the "genial genius of the guitar," recently performed with the Boston Pops.
