New York, NY (PressExposure) June 09, 2009 -- Susie Meissner began performing professionally with a dinner theatre group in the mid-70s earning a paltry $7 a night. The education she received during that tenure goes beyond anything tangible. Prior to that sojourn her lifetime love for jazz and great songwriters began in her youth by exploring that wonderful world through the recordings of Nancy Wilson, Joe Williams, Ella Fitzgerald, and Billie Holiday. Then once Susie was exposed to the genius of Cole Porter, Irving Berlin, and Rogers and Hart, she immediately became infatuated with their work. That respect and adoration reaches its fruition on a beautiful tribute to honor her inspirations on Iâll Remember April.
Susie effortlessly makes her way through standards such as âHow Deep Is The Oceanâ (Irving Berlin), âLittle Girl Blueâ (Rodgers & Hart), and âWhat A Wonderful Worldâ (George David Weiss and Bob Thiele). With the help of some seasoned veterans such as special guest and Grammy Award winner Brian Lynch (trumpet), the jazz diva makes all the songs her own.
Iâll Remember April is a debut to remember and jazz aficionados everywhere will be talking about this release for some time to come. This is the kind of recording that hits the jazz puristâs sweet spot and Susie and her band are bound to reap the benefits.
