OK, folks. Jimmy's done it, Bob did it for years before joining Yellowjackets...so, do you think Russ should record a solo album? Let us know, and vote yes or no!

How about some ideas for a solo recording?

1. Pick some musicians you think would work well with Russell musically. And pick a format (duo, trio, quartet, etc.).

2. Choose the type of music or songs Russell could perform. All originals? A couple of classics? Music by one composer?

I'll think of some ideas and post them later. Wink

Hi.

I definitely think that Russ should consider doing a solo album. He's a great songwriter and keyboardist and has all the experience in the world. Russ, I hope you will give this some serious thought!
As for musicians that I would love to hear on the possible album, how does this sound: John Patitucci, Vinnie Colaiuta, Eric Marienthal, Alex Acuna, mIke Miller and Frank Gambale.

Best wishes,
Mark David

My take on band members for Russell's solo album:

Russell Ferrante
Robben Ford
Brian Blade
Marcus Miller

with Joshua Redman featuring on some tracks.

Predominantly Bluesy feel. Very laid back!

Most definitely not. Just kidding. Smile I hate it when everyone agrees on somethng 100%. That's why I also cast a no vote Smile
I would love to hear Russell Ferrante's solo project in either a trio or quartet setting.
In a trio setting, I would choose either Christian McBride or John Patitucci on bass, Horacio Hernandez on Drums, and Russell Ferrante on Piano and Synthesizers.
In a quartet setting, I would add Russell Malone on Guitar.
I would love to hear the YJs record an album with Claus Ogerman first. Smile

I like the sound of that Ford, Blade, Miller line-up. And how about adding Kurt Elling into the mix?

I'd defy anyone to beat me to the record shop! (Even a young whipper-snapper like Sergio Smile )

Come on Russ, bring it on.
