91 University Place, Princeton, | 609-258-2787

A one-of-a-kind musician and vocalist, Catherine Russell brings her show to the Berlind Theatre— Harlem on My Mind: Songs from the Great African American Songbook, as written or performed by Duke Ellington, Fats Waller, Alberta Hunter, Billie Holiday, Bessie Smith, Mary Lou Williams, and a host of others. Winner of a Grammy in 2012, Russell can sing virtually anything, but she is no mere nostalgist; she treats the vintage songs she sings as standards and her voice is a soulful instrument that radiates interpretive power, yet remains touchingly vulnerable. So when The Wall Street Journal calls her “the best jazz and blues singer going today,” it’s hard to disagree. Tickets: $65
