“The best that San Diego has to offer for great Jazz. There is no better host suited for this show than San Diego's own Sue Palmer. San Diego Sessions will showcase notable artists new, established and in-between who, like KSDS itself, represent the full spectrum of jazz and blues, past and present. Some of these artists currently live here, some no longer do. But all of them are well worth hearing in San Diego, and anywhere (and everywhere) else.”

“Thirty years in the music industry is a long time for any performer, particularly for blues artists and especially for women blues performers. For Sue Palmer, the “Queen of Boogie Woogie,” it’s been a star-studded blues career with many rewards and awards. The swing, blues and boogie-woogie piano player has toured the world and played music festivals throughout the U.S. and Europe as the pianist for blues diva Candye Kane. But it’s her solo and band recording as Sue Palmer and Her Motel Swing Orchestra that have generated the most awards. Her fourth release, Sophisticated Lady won an International Blues Challenge Award for “Best Self Produced CD” in 2008, her third release, Live at Dizzy’s won “Best Blues Album 2002/2003 and her solo piano album, Sue Palmer After Hours won “Best Blues Album 2010” from the San Diego Music Awards.”
