Susan Hodgdon has a passion for singing the American Songbook and performs one-woman shows at
New York City clubs. Her second CD pays tribute to one of the greatest songwriters of the
20thCentury, Cole Porter, known for both his music and lyrics. As she opens with “You’d Be So Nice To
Come Home To,” Hodgdon’s voice is immediately appealing and magnetic. She tackles the pleasing
repertoire of hits with contagious energy and without too many interpretive twists. Her
accompaniment includes piano (Daryl Kojak), tenor sax (Steven Frieder), bass (Sean Conly) and drums
(Dwayne Cook Broadnax)
