Russell Malone is one of the world’s leading jazz guitar voices, as a soloist and as a bandleader. He brings his artistry to our stage as a veteran of many tours as a longtime member of bands led by Ron Carter, Diana Krall and Harry Connick, Jr., as well as Roy Hargrove, Dianne Reeves, Bobby Hutcherson, Hank Jones, Branford Marsalis, Bobby Hutcherson, Eddie “Cleanhead” Vinson, Jack McDuff, Mulgrew Miller, and early touring with the great organist Jimmy Smith. He has recorded with such varied artists as Houston Person, Sonny Rollins, David Sanborn, Mose Allison, Gary Burton, and the Chieftains. His quartet for this concert includes pianist Rick Germanson, WP alumnus Vince Dupont on bass, and drummer Neal Smith.
Each Jazz Room concert is preceded by a “Sittin’ In” meet-the-artist session one hour prior to performance in Shea Recital Hall. Free to all ticket holders. Audience members have a chance to meet and interact with that day’s artist in a question-answer format.
