Sue Klassen's long-awaited debut CD, Follow A Star, is an all-new celebration of love and the spirit of Christmas! Released in November of 2000, Follow A Star features the original music of Milton Carman with lyrics by Garnett Betts and
Alex Barris. Performed in Sue Klassen's unmistakable vocal style backed by a solid combo and top-notch soloists, these uniquely jazzy, sophisticated tunes run the gamut from earthy to ethereal, making all the stops along the way
Robert Moyes, Monday Magazine, December 14-20, 2000:
"... And ending on a happy -- and local! -- note, we have a fine album by Victoria singer Sue Klassen, Follow A Star (MAPL). With a subtitle like Songs Of Love And Christmas-Time, you know it's not a purely Xmas record, but you'd have to be a grinch not to embrace this charming mood-brightener. The opera-trained Klassen sings here in a cabaret manner reminiscent of Rosemary Clooney or Susannah McCorkle, her confident voice framed by a supple jazz trio sometimes augmented by Spanish guitar, violin or flugelhorn. The songs, all composed by Milton Carman, are witty and sophisticated."
