Russell has the kind of genes that practically demand a career in jazz: her father, Luis Russell, was a big-band leader famously associated with Louis Armstrong, and her mother, Carline Ray, was a guitarist with the pioneering all-female International Sweethearts of Rhythm band. But the feisty vocalist Russell took a few interesting detours along her musical route, including stints as a backup singer for the likes of David Bowie, Paul Simon, and Cyndi Lauper. Her 2016 album, “Harlem on My Mind,” found her doing what she does so well, polishing swing classics with panache and sass.
