The new single from Contemporary Jazz vocalist, Kris Russell
Las Vegas based talented songstress Kris Russell grew up in Sacramento with a passionate love of ballads, swing, cool jazz, bebop and traditional jazz inspired by the likes of Julie London, Rosemary Clooney, Peggy Lee and Ella Fitzgerald.
Continuing to establish herself as a timeless contemporary jazz vocalist in her own right, she follows her debut single ‘I Concentrate on You’ with a sultry, soulful and exotic twist on Michael Franks' travelogue classic ‘Down In Brazil’.
Kris Russell’s version of ‘Down in Brazil’ is more contemporary and features driving Bossa Nova… it has a Smooth Jazz feel because of the emphasis and the inclusion of the guitar and saxophone.
With the release of this second new single, Kris decided to incorporate a newer sound and still include the traditional instrumentation and sound of traditional Bossa Nova that she loves.
She effortlessly blends into this new recording of ‘Down in Brazil’ the style and the sophisticated sound of those early powerful influences of the great jazz singers she studied while growing up!
