"Cymbalism" is Russ'' first solo album. Originally released in 2000, the Cymbalism record was a by-product of the Drum Set Crash Course DVD. Russ Says, "I always liked the compositions on Cymbalism, I never thought the record had a fair shot! It was done literally in one take surrounding the Crash Course DVD shoot. I wanted to revisit the record. I wanted to spend the time with it and make it sound like an album. We re-tracked all of the drums, some bass and guitar as well. Brad Haehnel remixed and we remastered it. Now, it sound like an album! Also, it was a lot of fun to re-track drums after playing those songs live for 5 years! Usually, I recording a song the first day I hear it, this was very refreshing". 
 The musical maturity gained in that five years is very evident on this recording. A traditional "Blue Note" instrumentation (Sax/Trumpet up front) with a powerful funk/R&B rhythm section approach, makes "Cymbalism" a very listenable and unique record. Along with Rique Pantoja (Steps Ahead, Brazilian Recording Star), Russ has penned very mature compositions. This recording also is the first time that Russ has used the same ensemble for an entire album. This led to a very tight sounding unit that grew together through the process of these recording sessions.
