With Bring It Back on Jazz Village/harmonia mundi, CATHERINE RUSSELL pushes her remarkable run of solo work to new heights, building on her already-considerable renown as one of the foremost interpreters and explorers of mid-20th century American music.

Her fifth solo album finds Russell fronting an expanded 10-piece band, covering her widest artistic ground yet – from the earliest days of jazz through the swing era and into the rhythm and blues explosion – but with her most personal stamps. That takes extra inspiration and depth from her mother, pioneering jazz musician Carline Ray, who passed away shortly after the album was finished. And there is also a very strong presence of her father, long-time Louis Armstrong band leader and arranger Luis Russell, who is represented in several songs coming from their collaborative repertoire, drawing on the “Louis and Luis” concert she led at Jazz at Lincoln Center in spring 2012, including “I’m Shooting High” and “Public Melody Number One.” Most profoundly, the album includes the first-ever recording of “Lucille,” a song of her father’s, recently discovered in the Armstrong archives.
