Russell Ferrante Plays Jazz at All Saints Church

Published on Friday, February 19, 2016 | 3:02 pm

On Sunday, February 21, at 5:00 p.m. in the church. All Saints parishioner and 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.

Russell Ferrante began piano lessons at the age of 9 with the expectation that one day he would be the church pianist … but his musical interests took him elsewhere. Russ has performed with the likes of 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, and he currently teaches in the Jazz Studies department at USC.

Ed Bacon offers a meditation. Child care provided.
