Sue Childs

Sue Childs was a young singer originally from Flint, Michigan, who sang with all of the outstanding musicians both in her hometown and the Detroit area during her formative years. "Introducing Sue Childs" was her only album, and it came about in 1964 when Sue was booked on the same show as the Tony Sotos quartet at Mr. C’s Supper Club in Flint. The excitement of the two acts working together made the producer’s choice an easy one.

Miss Childs had her own distinctive style and approach to jazz, and contributing to the hard swinging atmosphere of these recordings is the accompanying group of tenorist Tony Sotos. Since its release in 1964, her album has become a collector’s item, and what it makes particularly desirable even today, is the stimulating participation of star tenor saxophonist JR. Monterose on two of the tracks.
