(March 18, 2024) —  

Jazz at Lincoln Center welcomes acclaimed vocalist Catherine Russell back to The House of Swing to headline The Appel Room during Women’s History Month on March 29-30 at 7:00 p.m. and 9:30 p.m.

The Grammy Award winner and JALC fan favorite has been one of the most widely recognized jazz vocalists since the release of her debut album in 2006. A master of countless musical styles, Ms. Russell elevates every set with historical perspective and original interpretation. For this run, world-renowned tap dancer, choreographer, and educater Michela Marino Lerman joins Russell and her acclaimed ensemble, featuring Jon-Erik Kellso, John Allred, Evan Arntzen, Matt Munisteri, Ben Paterson, Russell Hall, and Domo Branch, to perform repertoire from the Hot Club era – the vibrant and swinging style that emerged from 1930s Paris – in front of the majestic New York City skyline.

Before each 7:00 p.m. concert, Matthew Rivera of WKCR and Hot Club of New York hosts an engaging listening session in the Varis and Leichtman Studio at Frederick P. Rose Hall on Friday and Saturday, 5:30-6:30 p.m.

The 9:30 p.m. shows are available for purchase as part of the 9:30 in The Appel Room series: Purchase any seat in the house for three (3) different 9:30 p.m. Appel Room performances for only $99 (includes all fees).

The Appel Room is located at Frederick P. Rose Hall, home of Jazz at Lincoln Center, at 60th Street and Broadway in New York City. For additional information, visit jazz.org/catherine.

Jazz at Lincoln Center’s 2023-24 season focuses on the concept of community; the broader community of jazz; the numerous communities that nurtured its master practitioners across its timeline; the communities of consciousness that influenced these practitioners; the music’s power to bridge divides and coalesce these distinct communities; and the role of jazz – and the arts writ large – in maintaining the human connection in the digital era. Throughout its 2023-24 season, Jazz at Lincoln Center explores these subjects with concerts featuring the forward-thinking composers, virtuosic improvisers, and ingenious conceptualists that populate the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis. Implicitly or explicitly, season concerts, education programs, advocacy initiatives, and Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra tours directly evoke themes that illuminate, as Managing and Artistic Director Wynton Marsalis puts it, the notion that, “Our music has the exceptional ability to bring people together.”

The organization’s 36th season runs from Sept. 21, 2023, to June 8, 2024, in Rose Theater, The Appel Room, and Dizzy’s Club – all at Frederick P. Rose Hall, the home of Jazz at Lincoln Center, located on Broadway at 60th St. in New York, New York. In addition to 24 unique live concerts throughout Frederick P. Rose Hall and more than 350 nights of music at Dizzy’s Club, the organization offers webcast performances via the Jazz Live app, in-person and virtual education programs, and Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis tour dates worldwide.
