PRESS REVIEWS
The whole concert was a huge triumph for those of us who heard them perform for the first time and I recommend that you make every effort to catch them, and see them live whenever you have the opportunity, as Suzanne Mellard is a name to watch out for. I guarantee that any Jazz Lover will not be disappointed.
