While they do have snacks and beverages available on the theater's mezzanine level, I would recommend eating a quick and satisfying meal downstairs at the Whole Foods within the Shops at Columbus Circle complex.

Most of the seats at this venue are plastic director's chair height style with built in arms and a footrest. Not a problem for me, but in observing the audience as I waited for the performance to begin, noticed that for some patrons, it was difficult for them to comfortably fit in the chairs since they are not adjustable in terms of width. Be forewarned and potentially spring the extra bucks for the select café style table seats down in the orchestra level if this is a concern for you or ask the staff at Lincoln Center to help find you a more comfortable location if possible.

The setting was excellent. However, though Ms. Russell had a very nice voice,the music was very dated; even for me a 63 year old person.

Description

Catherine Russell was hardly an overnight sensation. But following her 2006 debut recording Cat, she was suddenly headlining jazz festivals and opening for rock stars like Steely Dan and Paul Simon. Her road to recognition has roots as deep as the mix of jazz, blues, folk, and Americana that has made her a rising star. Inextricably linked to her ascension is the growing legend of her musical father, Luis Russell, who was Louis Armstrong’s musical director.

In this concert, she honors both men by featuring jazz and Swing Era repertoire with a ten-piece orchestra including guitarist Matt Munisteri, pianist Mark Shane, trumpeter Jon Erik-Kellso, trombonist John Allred, saxophonist/clarinetist Dan Block, saxophonist Andy Farber, bassist Lee Hudson, and drummer Mark McLean.
