Entertainment Weekly - 6/4/93, p.55"...McCorkle has such complete (and justified) faith in her material, she can move with aplomb from a slowly rockin' 1920s Bessie Smith number, to a reflective, contemporary Rupert Holmes song, and on to sweet/sad Brazilian jazz..." - Rating: B

For this Concord release, singer Susannah McCorkle alternates vintage standards and obscurities with some more recent songs such as "The Waters Of March," and Dave Frishberg's "Quality Time," and Paul Simon's "Still Crazy After All These Years." The bread and butter is still the older tunes and among the highlights are "The Lady Is A Tramp," "My Sweetie Went Away," "Hit The Road To Dreamland" and a remake of "The People That You Never Get To Love." McCorkle is joined by four horns (including trumpeter Randy Sandke and Ken Peplowski on tenor and clarinet) plus a rhythm section led by her pianist Allen Farnham who also serves as her musical director. A fine all-round showcase for the talented singer. ~ Scott Yanow
