Russell Malone Quartet

  • Jazz Standard 116 East 27th Street New York, NY, 10016 United States (map)

Shows at 7:30pm and 9:30pm nightly

Jazz guitar legend Russell Malone was 25 and not yet a legend in 1988 when organist Jimmy Smith recruited him as a sideman. He went on to play in the bands of Harry Connick, Jr. and Diana Krall, contributing to four GRAMMY–nominated albums by Krall. He made his debut as a leader in 1992 with a self–titled album for Columbia. The guitarist recorded well–received albums for Columbia (Black Butterfly), Impulse! (Sweet Georgia Peach), Verve (Heartstrings), and Blue Note, which documented his longtime relationship with bass legend Ron Carter in the Golden Striker Trio. “One of the best loved jazz guitarists by both fans and critics. His sound is full and rich; his fingers fleet, the ideas springing from his head to his hands with speed and dexterity.” (All About Jazz)
