May I Come in
An extraordinary jazz vocalist, Sue Tucker comes from a family of known jazz musicians. She didn't have to look far for encouragement when her love for singing took off. 'My father was an exceptional jazz educator. Music was always around...mostly jazz.' Before she took up singing, Sue was blowin' her tenor sax in jazz band and tootin' a duet with Clark Terry at a jazz festival on her clarinet. 'I think playing a horn has had a great influence on my singing. I've tried to approach singing from an instrumental mindset. Space is just as important as sound and if you lose the emotion of the lyric with a lot of nonsense frolicing...you might as well go home.' After attending college, Sue began a studio career producing and singing jingles and industrials with a voice-over thrown in occasionally. You'll find her in various nightspots singing her cool jazz. Sue's CD is straight ahead swing with a couple of originals thrown in. The CD was recorded in NYC by some of the best musicians around...Give it a listen.
