All Saints parishioner, 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 nine 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. In addition to performing and recording he currently teaches in the Jazz Studies department at USC. We are thrilled to welcome him back to kick off the New Year as part of our Jazz Vespers series.
