NEW RELEASE. Susie Blue & the Lonesome Fellas. Back in Babys Arms

Back in Baby’s Arms – A Chicago Tribute to Patsy Cline featuring Harmonica Maestro Howard Levy
with Susie Blue & the Lonesome Fellas

 


Chicago's Susie Blue & the Lonesome Fellas has a new single out for summer, a tribute to the great Patsy Cline with an updated, feisty cover of  "Back in Baby's Arms".   The band has been making history as Chicago's most notorious and innovative Western Swing Group, but over the past year they have been busting genres  with a unique Chicago-styled Rockabilly and Retro Country sound, releasing singles that have hit the airwaves on radio stations like BBC Radio, NPR, Dublin FM, WFUV and thousands of other Alternative  based radio stations across the US and Internationally.   Their recent single, a vocal version of the Peter Gunn Theme that was written by Henry Mancini for Sarah Vaughan, crossed over from Alternative to Jazz and Blues radio stations featuring a boisterous horn section with Chicago sax maestro Eric Schneider and trombonist Jack Gallagher.   And now the band frolics back to their Retro Country roots with sui generis update of the classic Patsy Cline favorite.
 

The song opens at a rollicking pace with harmonica maestro Howard Levy of Bela Fleck and the Flecktones  flirting through the first few bars, inviting the listener into the familiar tune but at a faster and more boisterous pace than we are accustomed to.  Neal Alger plays a distorted rockabilly guitar  while drummer Phil Gratteau lays out a combustable tempo that even Paul Cook of the Sex Pistols would be proud of.  Vocalist Solitaire Miles holds the original song down with her Cline-esque  vocal,  keeping the sound nostalgic,  while Levy cavorts around her swing-styled back phrasing,  transforming the song into a romping melee of genres.   Neal Alger has a rockabilly style solo, but remains arioso since Alger is also a jazz guitarist.   In fact  all of the band are veterans of the Chicago Jazz scene, but they have been transforming their styles and sounds over the past year, to create a rockabilly/jazz amalgamation to the delight of many listeners across the globe.
 

So if you're looking for a fun and frisky song to play at a party or just jam to in your car,  this single will hit your nostalgic meter at 10 and also get you singing along with the classic  lyrics for an entertaining and lively 3 minutes, and maybe make you want to play it all over again.     - Jean M Reid, Chicago Music Guide.
