"McCorkle's singing is wonderfully reminiscent of the young Billie Holiday..."
Personnel: Susannah McCorkle (vocals); Danny Moss (tenor saxophone, clarinet); Duncan Lamont (tenor saxophone, flute); Digby Fairweather (trumpet, cornet); Keith Ingham (piano); Ron Rubin (bass); Derek Hogg (drums).
Originally recorded in London, England in 1977.
For her second recording and first U.S. release, singer Susannah McCorkle performs 14 songs fortunate enough to have the delightful lyrics of Johnny Mercer. Whether it be the Dixielandish "At the Jazz Band Ball," "Blues in the Night," the touching "Skylark," a "Dream" medley, "One for My Baby" or the novelty "Arthur Murray Taught Me Dancing in a Hurry," McCorkle does full justice to the words she sings. Recorded in London in 1977, the date finds McCorkle joined by such fine English musicians as pianist Keith Ingham, bassist Ron Rubin, drummer Derek Hogg, the tenors of Danny Moss and Duncan Lamont, and the excellent trumpeter Digby Fairweather. ~ Scott Yanow
