Susan and the Les Paul Trio

Susan and Les Paul Trio

Susan is a remarkable harmonica player, and no wonder, she had the best of all mentors in the world, namely Robert Bonfiglio, Cham-Ber-Huang and the legendary Charles Leighton from whom she received private coaching.

From the time she got her first harmonica from her father she new she wanted to become a professional harmonica player. She began public performances at the age of seven. She earned her bachelor's at Emerson College. During that time she continued to perform in the Boston Jazz clubs.

Classical music on the harmonica made her go to New York to study with Robert Bonfiglio and Mr. Huang. Only after one year of study Susan was recognized as one of the top ten harmonica players in the world. She was the first classical harmonica player to solo with orchestra at the Juilliard School. One of her own compositions, while studying at The Juilliard School, gained her entrance into the BMI Jazz Composer's Workshops where she studied with Manny Album and Jim McNeely.

With a repertoire that ranges from Bach to Villa-Lobos, popular music and blues, she has appeared throughout the United States, Europe and South America. She made her television debut accompanied by Harry Connick, Jr. on the Donahue Show. Susan featured on numerous television and radio programs, and she enjoys regular guest status with no one less then legendary guitarist Les Paul and The Les Paul Trio in N.Y. City.

Susan's new CD " Angel on a Harp " is a master piece. Charlie Leighton is special guest artist in "Time after Time". The title is well chosen as Susan is surrounded by many of her 'Angels' as she calls them. To find out more about it, I suggest you should order these remarkable recordings by an even more remarkable lady.
