Qi Note Records is a label begun by saxophonist/singer/songwriter "Sweet" Sue Terry. Her passionate sax playing "sends other players back to the shed" (Stanley Crouch) and her music "reaches into one's soul" (Royal Stokes). The name "Qi Note" refers to her combined loves of music and martial arts. "My intent is to make music that tells the stories we all want to hear. Sometimes you need a song more than you need food," says Sweet Sue.
