Called “one of the outstanding singers of our time” by The Wall Street Journal, GRAMMY-winning vocalist Catherine Russell performs music from her latest album, Alone Together, for this Fridays at Five, recorded in September 2019 at the start of our 2019-20 Season. Over her momentous career, Russell has recorded and shared the stage with artists including David Bowie, Steely Dan, Michael Feinstein, Paul Simon and Rosanne Cash, recorded seven albums, and won a GRAMMY for her contribution to the soundtrack for the smash HBO series Boardwalk Empire. Recently, she appeared onscreen and in the soundtrack to Bolden, director Dan Pritzker’s 2019 biopic about cornetist and jazz pioneer Buddy Bolden. With Alone Together, Russell explores the rich trove of music emerging during the Swing Era.

The coronavirus separates us, threatening the fabric of community – but music connects, which is why we’ve launched Fridays at Five. It’s what we need right now: a new series of weekly pre-recorded concerts that aspire to connect you – to music, to musicians, to the warm and unique feeling of experiencing live music at the SFJAZZ Center.
For just $5 a month ($60 annually), you can become a Digital Member and tune in each Friday at 5 PM (PT) for the latest concert. Make it a regular date. Bring a glass of wine and cozy up – we think you will discover that digital technology can reveal new dimensions of musical performance. Fridays at Five is not your typical video concert series; it is designed to take you inside the music.
