Biography

Canadian vocalist Susie Arioli was pretty much relegated to the musical fringes in Montreal and environs until she exploded upon the scene with the creation of her Swing Band in 1998. She and her group opened for Ray Charles at the Montreal International Jazz Festival and since then has been in the limelight, performing regularly at festivals, concerts, touring (including a stint in ...

This is a wonderful CD. I bought it while on a business trip to Toronto (never seen this artist in the US). It is a little subtle. On first listen I wasn't blown away, but after getting home and putting it on a few evenings I have gotten hooked. I have listened to it countless times since. The arrangements have a really nice easy swing quality to them, and they have a maturity and sophistication that seem amazing given their obviously (from the photos) tender ages. Susie's voice is lovely, and she uses it well, no affectations or vocal gymnastics from trying too hard. Again the sense is a great maturity. You get the impression that these are a bunch of very talented young kids who have a great respect (even reverence) for for old swing jazz bands, and with this CD they have paid great homage.

I sometimes buy an unknown artist because the disc looks interesting, or is cheap. As I loaded up the car cd changer to go home, this was the one (of a batch of 20) I wanted to hear first. Call it intuition but I somehow knew I was going to like Ms Arioli, and I do - lots. Too often there is insufficient variety in mood and tempo on a single album. So after five or six tracks you hit next disc. Not here!! The instrumentals (hit it Jordan) are as good as jazzy little Big Bands get, and you don't know Lady Day if Suzie's vocals don't make you think of Billie Holliday (without some of her more annoying singing mannerisms)(Don't Explain). And that's homage indeed. One track (8)is "Having Fun". Indeed we are.

Well it seems Susie Arioli and company have hit pay dirt again!
Their pick of numbers on this collection(their second CD) are even better than their first CD.Susies' vocals are as dreamy as always and Jordan Officers' solos are more tastefully executed than ever.
"Pennies From Heaven" is simply...heaven,"Honeysuckle Rose" would surely make old "Fats" sit up and take notice,in "Jordan's Boogie"
Jordan has a hay day with the old blues "line" and "Sit Down Baby" is a simply superb number highlighting both guitarists and their abilities.Toronto blues guitarist Jeff Healey(is there nothing in the music scene there that he ISN'T involved in?)also comes along for the ride and keeps things jumping.
I can find few faults with this CD and again this very talented Canadian group keeps chugging right along and proving once again what GREAT talent lives in the land above the 49th parallel.I just wish the radio establishment would wake up and push our talent the way it should be instead of settling for pre-programmed mush originating in thought mostly from south of the border.
I give this CD a 4 1/2 star rating!
Get it...now!!

I have never heard of the Susie Arioli Swing Band before. After listening to some samples, I thought I would take a chance and buy the CD. What a wonderful surprise. Susie Arioli has a unbelievable voice. I would put her up there with Diana Krall.
The music selection is great and the arrangements are well done. Jordan Officer's guitar work is right on and complements Susie's singing. I love it and if a Cd can wear out, then this one will.

I ordered this CD because forever I've been looking for

a band that might offer the brilliance of the UK's Fairground Attraction.

Maybe it's Suzi's dowdy hairstyle on the cover that reminded me of Eddi Reader before she bought her contact lenses and started to look like Celine Dion. This is not Fairground but there are other attractions apart from Suzi's equally distinctive voice. Jordan Officer provides an accompaniment perfectly tuned to the vocals with minimal brushwork on snare keeping his creativity to the fore. Maybe on their next CD they could do covers of 'Moon on the Rain, 'The Moon is Mine', 'Whispers'. Montreal is lucky to still have a band like this playing jazz in their basement bars.

Love Susan Arioli's voice and the band's instrumentation. It is nice to hear good swingy, jazzy music.
