A Thousand Goodnights


Western Swing band Susie Blue and the Lonesome Fellas releases a new single this Fall -  “A Thousand Goodnights”  - a Swing tune originally recorded in 1936 by the Father of Western Swing,  Milton Brown and his Musical Brownies.   The single  is a follow up to their self-titled,  award winning  album and features a charming fiddle solo by Stuart Rosenberg with harmonies  by Steel Guitar virtuoso TC Furlong, along with acoustic guitar,  piano, bass and drums.   You can download the new song at itunes, Amazon, CD Baby, and Bandcamp.

Milton Brown founded the genre of Western Swing in the 1930’s.   His band “The Musical Brownies” was the first to fuse Roots, Big Band Swing, Jazz, and Pop together into the unique and distinctly American hybrid.   Susie Blue and the Lonesome Fellas is Chicago's award-winning   Western Swing band, comprised of Chicago's best Jazz, Swing, Country and Roots players.   They follow in Browns footsteps by creating  authentic Western Swing,  and have recently been  awarded “Best Song” by the Academy of Western Artists in 2016 for their arrangement of the Cindy Walker tune “Love is a Lingering Thing”. 

"Vocalist Solitaire Miles comes out of the Patsy Cline tradition.   She sings Western Swing material with warm highs and holds her lows neatly.  There's a jazziness about Miles's phrasing, but she holds fast to a sound reminiscent of roadside bars where just three people are left near closing at the pinball machine.”   Wall Street Journal
 
"Susie Blue and the Lonesome Fellas includes some of Chicago's best Jazz and Country players.  The group is pure Cowboy Jazz, and Miles adds a lively vocal style that brings to mind a winning blend  of Patsy Cline and Billie Holiday. " 
 DownBeat Magazine


"In her home base of Chicago Solitaire Miles boasts an avid following as a singer equally at home with jazz and swing. Given that combination of styles, it’s no surprise—but an unexpected delight—to hear what she can do with western swing, which is not all that far removed from what she has been doing for years now. In her guise as Susie Blue, with her band  billed as The Lonesome Fellas, she deploys her warm, sultry voice on choice material, strictly top drawer fare, from some of the most important songwriters in western swing history..." 
 
David McGee, Deep Roots Magazine
