ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Sue wrote 'She Want Him' in 1996 but it was not recorded until her first release, 500 miles high the air is blue of 2001. This version was re-recorded in 2004, for her second release, 'Just For Luxury'. It features John Horler on piano, Andrew Cleyndert on bass and Mark Fletcher on drums. A key piece by McCreeth, this is her only song written in 'swing'. It was re-mastered by Alex Wharton at Abbey Road Studios, London, in 2017.

Sue McCreeth: Look Back and Love review – an impressive showcase
Highly original songwriting with wildly contrasting styles
****
As a singer-songwriter, Sue McCreeth is highly unusual in two ways. First, she takes as her starting point not a few words or snatch of melody, but a harmonic idea. This comes, perhaps, from having studied with Gary Burton and Joe Mulholland at Berklee College in Boston. Second, she alters her singing voice quite radically to suit the character of individual songs. As a result, the sheer contrast from one song to another, while very effective, can be a little bewildering until you get used to it. This anthology, drawn from her previous five albums, with a few new pieces added, provides an impressive introduction.
