Susie Arioli Susie Arioli

The Susie Arioli Band was started by singer Susie Arioli and guitar player Jordan Officer in 1997. At first the repertoire consisted of whatever Susie liked to sing, including jazz, country, R&B, bluegrass, blues, rock&roll.. Eventually the main focus of the band became jazz, and in particular pre bebop jazz. Their first big show was at the Montreal Jazz Festival, where after playing an outdoor show they were invited to open for Ray Charles at the prestigious Place Des Arts. Since then, the band has become a favourite of Canadian and International audiences with four best-selling jazz albums and tours of North America, Europe and Asia. Susie is known for her unaffected and sincere interpretations of beautiful old songs. The most recent CD is a departure from the others, and features six lesser known ballads by country songwriter Roger Miller. All four CD's feature Jordan Officer on guitar, violin (on That's For Me) and as an arranger. The last CD, Learn To Smile Again, is also produced by Jordan. The most recent release is a DVD of show at the Montreal Jazz Festival at the Spectrum (June 29th 2006) and a fifth CD is also being recorded this fall.
