EDDIE RUSS picture
Eddie Russ died at age 62 in November 1996 after an extended bout with chronic kidney failure. Eddie's passing left a void on the international and national jazz scenes - and he is sorely missed, as well, in Flint where he was a frequent performer in area venues and at the Flint Jazz Festival. Russ's last appearance at the Flint festival was in 1995. That this year's Flint Jazz Festival is dedicated to the memory of Eddie Russ is a tribute to his contributions to the Flint jazz scene and an indication of the high regard he enjoyed in Flint as a performer and a person.

Eddie Russ was an impressive jazz keyboardist-composer-arranger who worked with numerous legends through several decades, including Sonny Stitt, Sarah Vaughn, Dee Dee Bridgewater, Dizzy Gillespie, Stan Getz, Roland Kirk, Hank Mobley, Cal Tjader, and Clark Terry, among many others.

EDDIE RUSS See The Light

I've recently come to the conclusion this is my favorite jazz album of all time. It's got everything I've been looking for recently in a jazz record-a fabulous opening song, solid middle with groove and a variety of instruments including guitar and keys (hammond b-3, fender rhodes, clavinet). Uptempo, downtempo, mid, breezy, aggressive, happy, sad, this record is 36 minutes and for me when it's over it's like 10 minutes went by. The closing song is perfect, and this jazzfunk stays with you long after the sounds fade. Song 2, "Zaius", is a staple at rare groove clubs the world over.

These songs are perfectly formed and flow like it's a soundtrack to the career of Michael Jordan.
