Fanfare marks the third release on the Splash Point Records label for the talented singer/songwriter/trumpeter Sue Richardson. Looking within her personal body of musical influences, Sue wrote or co-wrote as well arranged all fifteen tracks on Fanfare where she melds a mélange of styles and genres into a tight exciting release. To read a review of Sue's previous release Emergence please visit the Music Scene section (Sue Richardson - Emergence).

The release opens with a short prelude entitled Opening Fanfare that sets the table with Sue's brilliant horn work. The release smoothly segues into Last Attempt At Love with Sue's touching vocals taking center stage. In addition, the track features stellar solos by Sue on trumpet and Neal Richardson on piano rounding out this up-tempo jazz track. The track Inbetween is an instrumental modern jazz track where Sue's arrangement allows each member of the band to step out and shine.

Last Goodbye is all about Sue's sultry vocals as she sings of handling a breakup "It's too late to change it now, life moves on and summers die, don't want to say this last goodbye, I've loved and loved and cried ..." What Do You Do (When your dreams don't come true)? sparkles with Sue's vocals while her horn blends segments of 40's jazz with a bit of swing on this fanciful track. Eat Me Up turns up the flames and Sue touches all the hot spots with her blazing horn work while the band wails away.

The track Out For a Duck shows the diversity of Sue's creativity with a New Orleans flavor on this short but fun track. Worlds Apart provides us another look at Sue's softer side and her enticing vocals and burning lyrics "Worlds apart like years between, wake up cold so to seem, we should stop now right at the beginning, while the odds against romance are winning ..." Sue turns to samba for her inspiration on the track  In The End as she saunters her way through the song. Winter Lullaby is a slow and measured track that has probably been played and sung to her baby son, Oscar, a few times; a touching and poignant song from her heart.

Other tracks include, SAS, which is a juiced-up jazzy track featuring captivating work by Sue on the trumpet and Andy Drudy on guitar; Walk On Gravel with great scat; Infatuation is a bouncy track that is framed by Sue's catchy vocals and her complementary trumpet; The Aubergine, a swing track that leads with Neal Richardson's piano that beckons Sue's trumpet, and a medley of closing songs Fanfare, Jazz Medley, and Fanfare (reprised) round out this delightful release.   

Sue continues to expand her horizons with her lyrics, vocals, and arrangements, and on Fanfare she has just started to scratch the surface of her enormous talents.
