    Russo, Santo

    Trombonist who supported Pearl Bailey on her 1957 releases A Broad and For Adults Only and became a fixture in Quincy Jones' orchestra, appearing on Jazz 'Round Midnight the following year, Quincy Jones Plays Hip Hits in 1963, and Pure Delight:  The Essence of Quincy Jones and His Orchestra (1953-1964).  In the 1970s, he hooked up with sax man Grover Washington, Jr. on his Soul Box albums, subsequently making the cut on The Best of Grover Washington, Jr.  He also appeared on Van McCoy's The Disco Kid, Eddie Kendricks' Vintage '78, and Frank Sinatra's Trilogy.  In 1993, he was the trombonist on the Broadway production The Red Shoes and went on to join Machito and His Orchestra for the Afro-Cuban jazz album Kenya.  They also contributed "Congo Mulence" to the 2000 compilation, Latino Blue.
