ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
An extraordinary jazz vocalist, Sue Tucker comes from a family of known jazz musicians.

She didn't have to look far for encouragement when her love for singing took off. "My father was an exceptional jazz educator. Music was always around...mostly jazz."

Before she took up singing, Sue was blowin' her tenor sax in jazz band and tootin' a duet with Clark Terry at a jazz festival on her clarinet.

"I think playing a horn has had a great influence on my singing. I've tried to approach singing from an instrumental mindset. Space is just as important as sound and if you lose the emotion of the lyric with a lot of nonsense frolicing...you might as well go home."

After attending college, Sue began a studio career producing and singing jingles and industrials with a voice-over thrown in occasionally. For the past five years she's been teaching music theory, vocal studio techniques and is the coordinator of the ensemble dept. at Music Tech in downtown Minneapolis. You'll also find her in various nightspots singing her cool jazz.

Sue's CD is straight ahead swing with the last cut (title cut) being an original by Sue and her brother, well-known New York jazz artist Dick Oatts. Give it a listen.

All About Jazz

...there is nothing boring about the music on Meant for You.
Sue Tucker is a wonderful singer. Not just better than expected or good for an unknown singer, but straight out wonderful. Sue Tucker is a singer who shouldn't have to make her own records. She deserves the support of a good record label and the opportunity to be heard by the national jazz audience.

Meant For You is a fine CD by any standard and it has moments so wonderful, we can heartily recommend you buy this disc. The absolute must haves are a driving Sugar (the Stanley Turrentine song, not the old chestnut), and an absolutely dreamy version of The Very Thought of You that will justify the purchase. With the latter, we actually get chills.

The Jazz Zine

Her vocal style is like that of another horn in the band.
On her latest, self produced, CD release "Meant for You," she displays an easy and unrestrained sense of swing somewhat reminiscent of a Mildred Baily. Her vocal style is like that of another horn in the band.

If you seek a romantic voice, your search has ended.
Her voice twinkles; some words are mischievous, and others have a childlike glow. If you seek a romantic voice, your search has ended. Sue Tucker is Meant For You.

This is definitely good music and best of all, you don't have to know anything about jazz because this music lets you feel it. If that's not good music, I don't know what is. This CD is hot and one that could definitely be a contender for jazz album of the year.

She's got take-your-shoes-off music, and you just wanna say, thanks, baby. Just an intimate little album that lowers the lights, puts the electric blanket right on.
