Helen’s latest venture is to step out of the backing vocalist/harmony singer shadows and begin featuring herself as jazz vocalist, combing the standard repertoire for neglected gems.
As vocalist/bassist, Helen can appear in a duo with guitar or piano, or in a trio or quartet setting with drums and/or saxophone.
Songs: Everything Happens to Me (Dennis/Adair), As Long as I Live (Arlen/Koehler), I Don’t Know Enough About You (Barbour/Lee), You Took Advantage of Me (Rodgers/Hart), The Second Time Around (Van Heusen/Cahn), and Broadway (Woody).
Helen Russell – double bass & vocals, Jamie Clark – guitar, and Paul Hudson – drums.
Recorded on 29 June, 2014 at the Brisbane Jazz Club by Mark Smith.
