Sue Tucker - May I Come In
Artist: Sue Tucker (www.suetucker.com)
Title: May I Come In
The last time I heard Sue Tucker sing I was impressed. That was in 2001. In 2003 on her new release May I Come In, she picks up where she left off and continues to sing with inspiration and heart.
The woman sings a jazz tune with great enthusiasm and has a deep respect for all the great divas that have come before her. With help from her brother Dick Oatts (woodwinds) and brother-in-law John Mosca (trombone) and several other top-flight professionals, Tucker dances and sings her way through a set of standards and not so standard tunes along with a few originals as if it were a walk in the park.
Her voice is so sweet and endearing; it reminded me of the way Ella Fitzgerald always sends me straight to heaven.

Sue Tucker has a mountain of talent and does a beautiful job with tunes created by other composers. I do feel her level of talent is very high, good enough that an entire album of originals would be a great success for her. I hope the next time she cuts an album this will become a reality.
The most impressive aspect of this woman's talents is the way she makes her voice an instrument that is able to blend with the music. That God given gift is precious to any vocalist. In this particular style of music, it serves as her greatest benefit in making each individual song a treasure for your listening pleasure. This CD could be "The Best Thing For You" if you have not relaxed and got into a smooth jazz groove in some time. Let Sue Tucker will show you the way. I know because this gentleman is no dope, I know when I hear great jazz and this CD swings.
