Cambridge-based Roslin Russell has performed regularly in both Cambridge and London over the years and also co-founded and organises the Cambridge Jazz Festival, now in its second year. Her voice has been compared to the late bluesy vocals of Ottilie Patterson (Chris Barber Jazz Band) and influences include Ella Fitzgerald, Aretha Franklin, Nina Simone, Nancy Wilson, Dianne Reeves and Jose James.
Roslin will be joined by Paul Stubbs (trumpet/flugelhorn), David Burgoyne (keys), José Canha (upright bass) for an intimate, joyous, interchanging and soulful performance of jazz standards with a few contemporary tunes - storytelling and improvisation with deep groove, blues and soul.
“What a fantastic night we had with the amazing Roslin Russell. What an unbelievable voice!” Ashtead Jazz Club, Oct 2015
