Format: Audio CD
Unlike some of Susannah's albums, this one has no particular theme but it opens with a cover of a Billie Holiday song (Laughing at life). Something to live for (despite its title, a very melancholy song) is followed by the much brighter Look for the silver lining. Next comes Nuages (a Django Reinhardt classic).
Caminhos cruzados is a Jobim song that Susannah sings here in its original language because she could not get permission to record a translated version. I wish I were in love again (a Rodgers and Hart classic) is followed by I ain't gonna pay no second fiddle (a cover of a Bessie Smith song), Losing had (a very early Ray Charles song) and I want to be a sideman (a contemporary song). Then comes another Jobim song in its original language, Insensatez, but this is famous in English as How insensitive.
Two obscure songs (A phone call to the past, Stop time) are followed by another Jobim song (Wave). The set ends with what is surely the most famous song here, the Irving Berlin classic, Blue skies.
This was among the last albums that Susannah recorded and is well up to the standard that everybody expected.

Susannah McCorkle's superb series of recordings for Concord are a wonderful legacy of her talent. This album was made late in her career, and is a brilliant, mature statement by an artist in full command of her craft. Her voice is rich, relaxed and expressive, her phrasing immaculate. She also benefits from some marvellous playing by her fellow musicians, not least musical director Allen Farnham on piano.

The song selection is typically thoughtful and varied. Her interpretation of a wry song much associated with Billie Holiday, "Lauging at Life", pays tribute not only to Susannah's deep affinity with Lady Day but also seems to reflect her own story with depression. I also hear something of an autobiographical subtext in the next track, "Something to Live For", which she sings with absolute intensity and which has a perfect, pensive arrangement.

On the lighter side, Dave Frishberg's "I Wanna Be A Sideman" is delightfully witty, and she finds real hope in Jobim's classic "Wave". Another great "lost" song is the Mercer/Mancini barroom lament "Phone Call to the Past", which she owns completely. I also loved "Stop, Time", which is a little known and very moving song about parenthood by Maltby and Shire.

This lady is much missed by all lovers of quality song and singing: she was the best.

HASH(0xa4d2d1bc) out of 5 stars If You Like Diana Krall, Give McCorkle a listen 29 Mar. 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Diana Krall has gotten a great deal of deserved attention over the last two years. She is good, but Susannah McCorkle is even better. Indeed, McCrokle is arguably the finest jazz singer...ever. This is not her strongest album (hence four stars rather than five), but it is very good. The heart of the album begins with "I Ain't Gonna Play No Second Fiddle" and continues through "Losing Hand" (a Ray Charles song), "I Want to be a Sideman," and "A Phone Call to the Past." Each of these songs is worth the price of the CD. The CD gets off to a good start with "Laughing at Life," but the next five cuts, while OK, would leave a listener thinking I have overrated this CD. Once you get to "I Ain't Gonna Play No Second Fiddle," you will know that Susannah McCorkle is the real deal. She never disappoints, always ranging from good to sublime.

HASH(0xa4d42180) out of 5 stars A Beautiful Sound... 28 Sept. 2002
By Angie E. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Susannah MCorkle's FROM BROKEN HEARTS TO BLUE SKIES is a superb listen anytime, but can't be beat for those rainy nights when you are left with your thoughts and a hot cup of tea. While her talent as a strong vocalist is undeniable, what is most striking about her albums is the sincere love and intelligent arrangements evident in every song.

"Laughing at Life," "Something to Live For" and "Look for the Silver Lining" are the kind of songs that settle comfortably in your bones; they are optimistic and sad at the same time.

"Nuages" and "I Ain't Gonna Play No Second Fiddle" are (like "Look for the Silver Lining" for Chet Baker) first-rate tributes; it's as if Susannah McCorkle channeled Marlene Dietrich ("Nuages") and Bessie Smith ("I Ain't Gonna Play No Second Fiddle") while managing to keep her own style as well.

Every song on here is unforgettable and the gems are the ones you don't see on most cover albums. "Phone Call to the Past" and "Losing Hand" recall maturity and careworn kinds of love; this is sophistication with no pretensions.

"I Want to Be A Sideman" and "I Wish I Were in Love Again" are happy, slightly sly songs that make you wish you were sitting back at a nice supper club with friends and black coffee.

If you're looking for an well-rounded album with panache and no gimmicks, with style and thought, here's one to consider. And don't forget to check out the bilingual "Wave" and the beautiful "Insensatez" (you would never know that Portuguese wasn't Susannah MCorkle's native language.)

HASH(0xa4d5dc54) out of 5 stars Mellow album with excellent mix of songs 29 May 2004

HASH(0xa4d65264) out of 5 stars Marvelous songs sung by a brilliant singer 30 Aug. 2013
By Harvey Black - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
McCorkle, who alas committed suicide several years ago, is a wonderful interpreter of these songs. She gives old and rarely heard material such as A Phone Call to the Past a wistful, moving treatment. She is equally up to the task of giving a doing a rousing version of "I Ain't Gonna Play No Second Fiddle."This tribute to legend Bessie Smith tells a philandering man to get his bags packed, because this woman has had it with his wandering ways.
HASH(0xa4d6536c) out of 5 stars From Broken Hearts To The Blue Skies - Susannah McCorkle 27 Jun. 2012
By GKL - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Nice renditions, very easy listening. I find that I can play any Susannah McCorkle CD and just let it go all evening. I never get tired of listening to her treatment of these old standards. She puts meanings into these songs in a unique, sensitive and wonderful way. One can believe that she experienced pain in her life and shared deep feelings in the songs.
