ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Joe Weihe, Victory Music Review, March 2005
There are only a few albums I want to listen to over and over. Highrise Lonesome is one of them. This is absolutely one of the most impressive first efforts I've ever heard. Sue Malcolm has been a regular on the Vancouver (BC) bluegrass scene for many years and her friends have been encouraging her to record for a long time. Her voice is clean, sweet and smooth and she moves between bluegrass, gospel, swing and country with effortless grace. Dead-on pitch and a straight ahead vocal style lends credence to the jazzier tunes like the classic 'You Don't Know Me' as well as a killer bluegrass version of 'Blue Night'. The beautiful Malcolm original 'Amber Eyes' is an instant 'old country' standard, and her arrangement of the Fred Rose western swing tune 'You're There' updates a classic while maintaining the original flavor. I've never heard a nicer version of 'I've Got a Right To Cry', and the gospel harmonies on 'River of Jordan' are rich and beautifully arranged. Paul Shelasky, Garry Stevenson, Ivan Rosenberg, Chris Stuart, Mason Tuttle, Marshall Andrews, Westy Westehofer and Eric Uglum make up an all star cast of acoustic musicians, and under the experienced direction of Producer Janet Beazley at New Wine Studio in California (who also contributes her considerable skills on the banjo and some exceptional harmony vocals), they've put together a real winner. This album features a wonderful selection of great songs, well recorded, and offered up with a rare level of taste and musicianship, but it is Sue's outstanding vocals that weave it all together. Put Highrise Lonesome at the top of your shopping list.
