Susie sings and swings with a lush tone and playful rhythm. Growing up in Buffalo, N.Y., Susie surrounded herself in music through piano and vocal lessons, choirs, glee clubs, school musicals, and performances with local professional singing groups. Her grandmother played stride piano and her sheet music from the 20’s and 30’s inspired Susie to look back into the Great American songbook. In her youth, Susie began to explore the world of jazz through the recordings of Ella Fitzgerald, and after witnessing the performances by jazz greats such as Earl “Fatha” Hines, Kenny Burrell and Nancy Wilson, her interest was piqued and she started down the jazz discovery road.
One of the world’s finest jazz saxophone players, Larry McKenna has just released “Larry McKenna From All Sides,” a new CD of original instrumental and vocal compositions and several jazz standards, supported in part by a Subito Grant from the Philadelphia Chapter of the American Composers Forum.
