Album Notes
Vocalist Sue Matthews first appeared in 1991, releasing the traditional jazz album LOVE DANCES that year. Her "silky smooth," "honey-toned," "expressive" smoky croon caught on with audiences and critics alike. Two years later, her When You're Around scored her another hit. She spent most of the 90's touring behind these two albums and appeared at every sort of jazz showcase or festival she could make it to. Finally, in 2002, One At A Time brought her back to the world of jazz recording." (Bradley Torreano, All Music Guide).

LOVE DANCES is a baker's dozen of some of the most seductive and stylish songs you'll ever hear. Matthews is backed by a superb rhythm section headed by Stefan Scaggiari (Concord Jazz) whose arrangements are wisely sparse, allowing Sue to showcase her extraordinary style. A gifted pianist, Scaggiari's sensitivity follows and anticipates Sues' every inerpretive nuance. Sting bassist Keter Betts (Ella Fitzgerald) sets the mood, enhancing Sue's subtlety throught the album. Guitarist Steve Abshire and drummer Mike Smith round out this first rate quartet, creating the gentle acoustic sound that characterizes LOVE DANCES.

Matthews' performance credits are varied from the top Mid-Atlantic jazz clubs, concert halls, jazz festivals and television studios, to these highlights: featured artist with the Calgary Philharmonic,Canada; Mid-Atlantic Jazz Showcase at the annual JazzTimes Convention; Seventh Annual Cabaret Convention held at New York City's Town Hall; seven-time featured artist at the Clifden Arts Week Festival, County Galway, Ireland; toured Hungarian schools by invitation of the Fulbright Commission showcasing American jazz and blues with her group Guys & Doll; two-time recipient of the Maryland States Arts Council Individual Artist Award in Solo Vocal Performance.

"Sue Matthews...a bona fide jazz singer. Her phrasing is a dream...her articulatin's razor-sharp." (JazzTimes)
"Matthews shines on the ballads, caressing the lyrics and letting the music do what it's supposed to to." (L.A. JazzScene)
