Guitarist, singer and songwriter Sue Foley actually transcends the blues with these 11 self-penned tunes, incorporating elements of rock and folk. At least one critic has called Foley a female Bob Dylan, and the characterization is not entirely off the mark. Though not as nasal a singer as Dylan, Foley also possesses a limited vocal range. However, she uses her voice to great advantage here. Her lyrics grow more heartfelt and poetic with each release, and her guitar playing remains powerfully bluesy. Ten Days In November is an honest, ground-breaking release from a developing young artist. This one should satisfy Foley's core blues followers and attract the attention of rock and folk fans, too.
I love jazz because it is a pure American music and can be expressed in different ways depending upon the artist.
I was first exposed to jazz while as a teenager I listened to Duke Ellington, Benny Goodman, and Louis Armstrong, on a jazz
radio station in New York City.
