Jazz Performance: The George Russell Jr. Trio with vocalist Lydia Harrell

April 29, 2022

About George Russell Jr.: Pittsburgh native George Russell Jr. is a performer, composer, and educator, who began taking piano lessons when he was 7 years old. Along with studying formally, he had the fortune of growing up playing at his local church. There was no written music at church, so he was given the opportunity to develop his ear. As George continued studying music in college, he discovered jazz and its harmonies and is now the head of the Harmony and Jazz Composition department at the Berklee College of Music, where he was given its Most Distinguished Faculty Award. In addition to George on piano, his trio includes Winston McCow playing bass and Sean Skeete playing drums.

About Lydia Harrell: Lydia Harrell is one of Boston’s finest musical treasures. Her sultry, soulful voice and evocative songwriting have garnered her the attention and respect of the nation’s finest musicians and venues. She has shown an unbreakable ability to mold herself into any musical situation, although Jazz/Soul is where her heart is. She is renowned for her virtually unmatched dedication to extracting the pure essence of song. She consistently performs in more than 150 shows a year not only as a solo act but also in collaborations with some of the world’s most renowned artists and ensembles.
