BrendaRussell.jpgVocalist Brenda Russell is now working on a comeback of sorts. She was forced to cancel her starring role in the Dave Koz & Friends Smooth Jazz Christmas tour in December after getting a diagnosis of diabetes. Now, with her health improving and her diabetes under control, Russell says she’s planning to tour this spring and summer.

She has confirmed one show, to be held April 7 in El Cajon, California, with producer and keyboardist George Duke. Other U.S. dates will be announced soon and plans are in the making for her long-awaited return to Europe. Meanwhile, Brenda’s first new album in four years, Between the Sun and the Moon, was released last year. It features the single, “I Know You By Heart.”
