    Lovely show. Samara Smith opened up singing two numbers to backing tracks. A great young vocalist that I’d like to hear more from. Samara gave a wonderful intro to the evening’s star, Suzette Woods. Suzette’s voice is warm and rich. It was obvious that Suzette was comfortable with and inspired by the music she was singing. The live portion in the middle featured accomplished guitarist Rick Cole accompanying Suzette for three songs and was a nice break from the track numbers. Recommended for anyone who wants to relax and sink in to some smooth jazz/R&B music.

    I enjoyed the show, allowed one to reminisce when we were caught up in a little ‘rapture’ of love. I also really enjoyed Ms Smith, and Rick as usual good to the bone lol, thank you for a delightful time. Suzette and your big beautiful heart. Blessings

    Suzette captured and nailed Anita’s signature, sultry voice styling to a capital “T”! Loved all the tunes. However, I really was diggin’ the way & styled delivery of her adaptation of “Sweet Love”. With the smooth, guitar mastery skill of Rick Cole backing Suzette-this was a definitely a sweet, audio treat down memory lane in a simple, sexy vibe. 2 Thumbs up!
