Got It Bad For You

This is a sample selection of an original by Suzanne, recorded Aug. 22nd, 2014 at Dead Aunt Thelma’s Studio in Portland, OR.  Here we have our quintet:  Suzanne, Theresa, Bill, and Connie.  Thanks to Owen Hofmann-Smith for his bass work.

The Way You Look Tonight

Again, our quintet playing this fine standard in swing.  Thanks to Owen for his bass work.

It Shouldn’t Happen To A Dream

Duke Ellington’s lovely ballad rendered here by our quintet.  Thanks again to Owen for his bass work.

Is You Is or Is You Ain’t My Baby

This is a live recording captured at one of our gigs.  Thanks to Jake French for his guitar work and Joe Aloia for his bass work.

I’ve Got You Under My Skin

This is our trio version of one of our favorite Cole Porter tunes.  Thanks to Hank Hirsch  for his bass work.

Don’t Explain

This tune was recorded at Duck Love Studios in Portland. I’ve always thought this soulful ballad is one of Billie Holiday’s best. Note the lovely sax solo played by Gary Harris.
