John Pizzarelli & Catherine Russell Present: Billie & Blue Eyes

A Salute to Billie Holiday and Frank Sinatra at MCG Jazz

World-renowned guitarist and singer, John Pizzarelli, and jazz and blues singer, Catherine Russell will be performing A Salute to Billie Holiday and Frank Sinatra at MCG Jazz.

John Pizzarelli has been hailed by The Boston Globe for “reinvigorating the Great American Songbook and re-popularizing jazz.” The Toronto Star pegged him as “the genial genius of the guitar.” Catherine Russell is that rarest of entities who can sing virtually anything. Her voice is full-blown femininity incarnate; a dusky stalwart and soulful instrument that radiates interpretive power yet remains touchingly vulnerable.  She launches fearlessly into each tune getting inside the melody and capturing every emotion.

John Pizzarelli & Catherine Russell will present two performances of Billie & Blue Eyes on Friday, November 22. The first show will begin at 7:00 pm, and the late show will start at 9:30 pm.
