Alice Russell Photos – June 26/09


Alice Russell performed on Friday to kick off Victoria’s Jazzfest International 2009. While it took some time for the crowd to get involved, by the first song of the second set, her cover of the White Stripes “Seven Nation Army”, she had the crowd in the palm of her hands. Russell and her band, a mix of musicians from Brighton, UK and San Francisco, played many of the songs from her latest release Pot of Gold including a stirring rendition of Gnarl Barkley’s Crazy as well as earlier collaborations with Quantic Soul Orchestra. Ms. Russell was a class act all the way, a true soul sensation! I had the chance to interview ALice after the show so tune to the Music of My Mind this Thursday (July 2) to hear the full interview. Audio will also be posted soon in the Interviews section.
