    Liner Note Author: Andy Breslau.
    On her second album, SENTIMENTAL STREAK, Catherine Russell turns back the clock to the era of blues, ragtime, and swing, summoning the ghosts of Ma Rainey, Bessie Smith, and a young Billie Holiday. Russell may draw comparisons to contemporary old-time revivalists like Madeleine Peyroux, yet there's an exuberance and vitality to the singer's performances that give SENTIMENTAL STREAK the ring of authenticity. Suitable for playing softly in the background or turning up to jitterbug levels, Russell's trip down music's memory lane charms and seduces.

  • Critic Reviews
    Down Beat (p.78) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "Refreshingly retro, Russell hearkens back to the pre-swing Depression era when her Panamanian pianist father Luis Russell led orchestra dates for ailing King Oliver and to the post-war swing era of her mother, bassist Caroline Ray..."
    JazzTimes (p.126) - "[T]he magnetic Russell further widens her repertoire to embrace the era of her pianist/bandleader father Luis and her acclaimed vocalist/bassist mother, Carline Ray....It all adds up to a sepia-tinted smorgasbord that's as bountiful as it is delectable."
    Dirty Linen (p.38) - "Her alto tones are rich and invitingly warm, and she employs pristine enunciation to cut to the emotional core of the lyrics at hand."
    No Depression (p.76) - "Russell's supple voice has the confident wallop and sashay of Alberta Hunter as she moves easily from songs by Willie Dixon to Yip Harburg."
