Swing on down to Tio Leo's (5302 Napa, San Diego 92111) for the CD Release Party for Sue's new album, "GEMS, Volume 1", 1980-2018 - featuring Sue Palmer & Her Motel Swing Orchestra, The Zzymzzy Quartet, Lori Corey and Garrison Bailey, with April West and special guests Jimmy Woodard and David Mosby. $10 cover.

GEMS consists of 20 songs I have recorded since 1980, with various bands of mine, with others, and with special guests. My latest recording, one of 20, was done this year, and was recorded by my band, Sue Palmer & Her Motel Swing Orchestra, with Sharifah Muhammad on vocals, and Laura Chavez on guitar. This beautiful Candye Kane/Laura Chavez penned tune, is called "Don't Cry for Me, New Jersey." Candye was a prolific songwriter, but rarely performed this tune in her live shows. The other 19 are particular favorites of mine, over the years, from bands Ms.B.Haven(an all women's rock band from the late '70s), Tobacco Road (featuring Mr. Preston Coleman), Candye Kane, a country/rockabilly band called the Hayriders, and my current band, to bands that have hired me(Earl Thomas, 2000 Lbs of Blues, Missy Andersen). Special guests on this album include San Diego all stars like Daniel Jackson, Gilbert Castellanos, Rob Thorsen, Molly Stone (Stones Throw), Adrian Demain, and others

"Toe taps give way to foot stomps. Finger snaps burst into claps. Shoulders spontaneously shimmy.  Hips begin to wiggle in provocative ways.  You can't help it.  The jump, swing, soul, grit, sex, heartbreak, jubilation....everything the music promised and more.  When the sax moans out 'Harlem Nocturne,' you expect to open the door to find it raining in black and white." ...Claudia Russell, The Jazz Ride Home, www.jazz88.org
