BRENDA RUSSELL - ULTIMATE COLLECTION BRENDA RUSSELL ULTIMATE COLLECTION It’s 10 A.M. on a humid Thursday and the A&M Records lot is quiet. The Mexican catering truck has rumbled back on to La Brea and everyone resigns themselves to getting through another day. Even the famed Charlie Chaplin Soundstage is devoid of bustle. Down a darkened hall in a rag-tag dressing room, Brenda Russell sits serenely before a mirror while a woman meticulously applies make-up to her mocha face. Brenda’s gaze fixes on the glass, as if pondering some time before when she perched on this same stool with wider, more naive eyes. When she turns to face her ardent interrogator, she is wearing a burgundy blouse emblazoned with the image of Sting, blue jeans and a well-worn pair of rainbow slippers. Her smile is heart-melting, her eyes friendly, and the cherry on top: her signature braids – long, thin strands flowing in a cascade of serpentine twists. She is, as my friend Anthony has always said, a quintessential black beauty. Brenda Russell is among the most distinguished artists to hold the songwriter/singer title in a lineage of women that includes Nina Simone, Laura Nyro, Joan Armatrading, Phoebe Snow, Rickie Lee Jones, Kim Carnes, Joni Mitchell, Teena Marie, Angela Bofill and Helen Folasade Adu (Sade). Though Brenda's songs are just as personal, they are purposefully crafted beyond self-centeredness to express feelings in ways that everyone can recognize, claim and interpret. Roberta Flack, Chaka Khan, Lalah Hathaway and Regina Belle have all woven wonders out of Russell’s material. Still, no one does Brenda Russell like the lady herself.
