Jazz Vespers: Russell Ferrante

Sunday, February 21

All Saints parishioner and founding member of the YellowJackets, Russell Ferrante’s first exposure to  music came from his church, where his father was the choir director as well as being a frequent vocal soloist and having a vocal gospel quartet. He began piano lessons at the age of 9 with the expectation that one  day he would be the church pianist … but his musical interests took him elsewhere.

Russ has performed with Jimmy Witherspoon, Jim Pepper, Joe Farrell, Joni Mitchell, Bobby McFerrin,  Robben Ford, Al Jarreau, Marilyn Scott, Kevyn Lettau, Ernie Watts, Sadao Watanabe, GRP, Big Band,  Lee Ritenour, Tom Scott, Take 6, Michael Franks, Eric Marienthal, and Brenda Russell. Russell currently teaches in the Jazz Studies department at USC.

Sunday, February 21, 5:00 p.m.
Ed Bacon offers a meditation.

Child care provided.
