'Sweet' Sue Terry strikes again!

“I'll Take Female Saxophonists for 600, Alex.”

She's been described as "formidable" (Ray Barretto), "remarkable" (National Public Radio), a "saxophone master" (Dr. Billy Taylor), "simply extraordinary" (Die Wahrheit, Berlin, Germany), and a "superwoman of jazz" (Hartford Courant).  A former protégée of Jackie McLean, she recently made the bold move to give up alto saxophone—the horn that made her reputation—in order to focus exclusively on soprano and clarinet.  She's also published two non-fiction books and holds eight USKSF Championship Tournament gold medals in taiji quan kung fu.

“Who is 'Sweet' Sue Terry?”
Her latest project?  A prolific creator, this year Sweet Sue collaborated with American film director Ashley Rogers and Venezuelan cinematographer Hernán Salcedo on a 9-minute documentary short titled The Source.   It was written and narrated by Sue and was filmed while she was Artist in Residence at the Jazz Society of Ecuador.  It features stunning visuals of the Ecuador landscape as well as live music scenes with up and coming Ecuadorian musicians and a guest appearance by New York pianist Bob Albanese.
* As an offering to the artistic community, the filmmakers have made it available for free on YouTubeand Vimeo
