by Craig Chapman
Brenda Russell is one of those gifted
entertainers, with a highly successful career
that the masses aren't aware of. Ms. Russell
is the triple threat that many artists can

For One Night”, and the classic “Get Here”
are just a few of her compositions. Besides
being a self-taught musician, Brenda
has a fine vocal instrument.

music has an earthy R&Bish jazzy sound, which at times has a
pop/folk feel. Not always commercial, but definitely a pleasure to
“Between The Sun And The Moon” is the title of Brenda’s latest CD,
scheduled to be available on October 5. This is an excellent collection
of songs, which should increase the public’s awareness of this
talented lady. The title track features vocal assistance from Patti

“You Know Your Day Will Come”, “When You Comin’ Back To Me”, and
“Too Cool For The Room”, provide a mid-tempo groove, while “Let
Somebody Know”, and “I Know You By Heart”, are the soothing
ballads that Brenda is known for.
