Russ spent more than a decade living & performing in Europe before returning to the US to settle in New York. Once there, he quickly became an established member of the city’s jazz scene. He earned his master’s degree in jazz performance at the City College of New York under the aegis of John Patitucci before going on to receive his doctorate in Jazz Composition at the University of Miami Frost School of Music as a Henry Mancini Institute Fellow.

"Channeling the spirited energy of hard bop with the progressive aesthetics of rock music, Spiegel carves out his own niche in the contemporary jazz scene." Troy Collins, All About Jazz
"Spiegel plays with a clear, bright sound & his solos reveal a sure-footed rhythmic instinct & a harmonic sense which may be rooted in bebop, but which also leans towards the future." Charles Alexander, Jazzwise (London)
"Intellectual to the core, melodic & elegant, Spiegel's music will engage & challenge you at the same time." Ed Blanco, EJazzNews
"A killer guitarist that’s simply welcome all over the world, Spiegel lays it down without pretense or drama & lets his clean lines & solid playing provide all the drama & dynamic tension non-smooth jazz should have, even when he’s playing it light & easy. A tasty cat you should definitely get to know." Chris Spector, Midwest Record
"The scorching solos…drew applause every single time." Arhan Sett, Times of India
