'Organic Folk Funk with an R&B Jazz Flavor' Welcome to 'Whose World'! The songs on this CD represent the superb musicianship of many extremely competent and serious artists. For example: Lonnie Plaxico who has played and recorded with such greats as Dizzy Gillespie, Art Blakey, Stanley Turentine and Cassandra Wilson to mention but a few as well as numerous self titled productions; Yaron Gershovsky, the musical director for Manhattan Transfer who has also played and recorded with Wayne Shorter writes 'Dear Sue, Thank you so much for the cassette! I was very happy to get it and listen to it! I enjoyed it tremendously, and I thank you for having me on it!!!'; Peter Calo who tours, plays and has recently recorded on Carly Simon's Arista CD; Jeffrey Haynes who has played and recorded with Dionne Ferris and Cassandra Wilson on Blue note Records. The title song 'Whose World' strongly addresses environmental issues. 'I Know' weaves a tale of love and loss. 'Gotta Get in My Car' - the great escape song perfect for driving...a summertime hit. 'Calling of the Wild' depicts breaking loose from corporate conformity and regimentation and 'Believe It' is the rainbow at the end of the storm. 'Get Up & Live' has inspired this quote from the East Side Express 'Her lyrics seek to communicate ideas and feelings, to provide happiness and share the kind of get-up-and-live optimism that has helped her move forward.'

Her vocal style lively and moving, she communicates magically with her audience. REVIEWS 'Her songs and hooks are bright and memorable, and her singing is first rate. She has a sophisticated hand with arrangements. We particularly like the way she weaves her verse/bridge/melodies together much like taking an escalator from floor to floor. Very smooth.' American Liverpool, NYC ' Greenwood's Folksy Jazz Leaves 'Em Gasping...Her lyrics are not escapist by any means. Instead she seems to want to project a one-to-one experience where the melody and words yearn to reach out and shake even the most hopeless case of lethargy.' Amadeo Richardson. East Side Express, NYC 'Ms. Greenwood is a powerful vocalist .. hailed for her expressive vocal capabilities and strong stage performance.' Cook County News-Herald, Minnesota 'Perhaps the most notable aspect of Greenwood's music is that it's real; no gimmickry, nothing artificial. It's simply an honest outpouring from the heart.' Chuck Schmidt, Staten Island Advance 'Sue Greenwood from NYC handily overcomes the noisiness of the Other End's dining room with a strong program of original songs.' Variety 'Her energetic vocal style adds dimension to her already multi-faceted presentation.' Staten Island Advance.
