SUE MCCREETH

THE OFFICIAL WEBSITE OF

Chris Hodgkins, Jazz London Radio “Sue McCreeth's new cd 'Queer Bird’ is a cracking album, with a stellar line-up and wonderful tunes.

Welcome


CHRIS HODGKINS writes:

“Sue McCreeth came to the attention of audiences and critics with her well received album in 2001, 500 Miles The Air Is Blue. Since then she has worked extensively throughout the UK with some of the finest jazz musicians on the scene; been shortlisted twice for the International Song Writing Competition; won three touring awards from Jazz Services; and sold out for the London Jazz Festival.

Sue’s last CD No Evil was recorded in the summer of 2013 and was released to great acclaim in May 2014.  The Observer's Dave Gelly gave a rare 4 star review and Wayne Shorter featured the album's release on his own website news page.

“Queer Bird - elegant songs of England born is a selection of 9 compositions by British composers, plus three originals by Sue McCreeth. This album is beautifully conceived, elegantly crafted and under pinned by a top flight team of musicians. The listener will be pleasantly surprised with the results, as all these tunes are artfully arranged and not just a rendition of some great tunes. Whilst Sue may have been influenced by the heroes the ‘American Song Book’ Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan and Anita O'Day, on this CD of British originals Sue more than demonstrates her talents as a vocalist in her own right.”  (Chris Hodgkins)

The Observer

“It's not singer plus accompaniment so much as four musicians working together ... a dozen intimate performances that bring out the best in McCreeth's voice, especially her whispery low register…”


Jazz UK

“Sue shows herself to be a skilful and faithful interpreter of the repertoire. A fine album by any standards.”


Jazzwise

“Another high quality recording from this ultra-flexible, well-regarded vocalist singing from the Great American and modern jazz songbook.” 


****

A voice simultaneously almost ethereal and sensuous and torchy…
