5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Peter Durward Harris #1 HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on 11 Jun. 2004
Format: Audio CD
Although Susannah had a lot of sadness in her life and ultimately committed suicide, the recording of this album appears to have happened during a happy period if the song selection is to be believed.
While Susannah has recorded several albums devoted to particular composers, this is one of her eclectic albums drawn from a variety of sources. Fascinating rhythm (a top ten hit for Cliff Edwards in 1925 and frequently covered in the years since then) is perhaps the most famous song here. One of two tracks composed by George and Ira Gershwin (the other is Who cares), it opens the album and sets the mood, although more up-tempo than most of the material here.
Among the other great songs here are Swing that music (Louis Armstrong), Do nothing till you hear from me (Duke Ellington), Breezing along with the breeze (a Dizzy Gillespie song that was a number one hit for Johnny Marvin in 1926), Don't let the sun catch you crying (Ray Charles) and Everything's been done before (Louis Armstrong).
This is, as some of the song titles suggest, a much more cheerful album than usual for Susannah but is of the same high quality as all her other original albums, all of which I've now reviewed except for a Harry Warren tribute that has never been released on CD.
If you are new to Susannah's music, you could buy one of her compilation albums, but each of her albums has its own identity. This album would make an excellent introduction to Susannah's music.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By R. Bawden jazz fan on 9 Jun. 2014
Format: Audio CD
I am VERY CHOOSY when it comes to singers: Ella and Billie both can do no wrong but even Sarah can have disappointing moments for me, and after that very few vocalists make my grade. Not everything that Susannah McCorkle does passes muster, but every second of this album is wonderful.

All that I know is that I've had a copy a long while and play it pretty frequently. Susannah has a unique voice: rich and smooth. Her phrasing and diction is perfect. On this album, recorded 25 years ago, she is in the company of six musicians (including two guitarists who feature one at a time; they are the highly respected Emily Remler and Bucky Pizzerelli). Ken Peplowski plays reeds, and there is a piano trio.

Every track is great, not all highly intellectual, just well sung and entertaining. I particularly like Gerry Mulligan's "Ballad Of Pearly Sue", "P.S I love you" and Ellinton's "Do Nothing Till You Hear From Me". There are seven more!

I cannot recommend it more!

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
A very likable jazz/cabaret album from Ms Corkle.She sings with her usual sophisticated ease, her phrasing immaculate and her way with a lyric ,involved but avoiding the trap of over-singing. The band are absolutely first rate with some great solo contributions from Ken Peplowski (sax) and pianist Dave Frishberg. Guitar fans will be interested to know that hot-shot Be bop guitarist Emily Remler adds some very fine solos on a number of tunes. Top tracks- plenty but my faves happen to be:the great take on 'Do Nothing Till You Hear From Me', the sensuous Bossa of 'No More Blues' not to forget the touching 'Sometimes I'm Happy'. Recording quality is excellent.

A great album - fresh and exciting look at old favourites 4 Nov. 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Mainly 30's and 40's rehash of old romantic favoutites, but done with a fresh and lively flavour, that brings it right up to date. Thouroghly enjoyable and something you can listen to again and again. The best easy going listening.

Chases Away the Blues 29 Sept. 2001
By Don A. Frascinella - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Susannah has done so much for her fans over the years by giving them some wonderful tunes of all types. Although she could not chase away her own blues, she helps us chase away ours with this delightful CD, which is a a series of uptempo and breezy tunes that will play great in your car or in your home.
As she usualy does, Susannah choses songs from a wide variety of composers. The title tune, by Jobim is a standout. Susannah continues her love for Gershwin by giving us a couple of his efforts - "Fascinating Rhythm" and "Who Cares". And we get a song from Satchmo - "Swing That Music" and of course, the Duke, with "Do Nothing Till You Hear From Me". Dizzy Gillespie's "Breezin' Along with the Breeze" just about sums it all up and is one of my favorites. And finally, "Can't Take You Nowhere", by Dave Frishberg (who is heard on piano on this one and plays on seeveral of Susannah's CDs (Aside - Dave Frishberg is an artist worth checking out. If you've heard Peel Me A Grape, Quality Time and Van Lingle Mungo, you know who this is). Her duet with him on "Everything's Been Done Before" is definitetly worth hearing. There is also a song titled "P.S. I Love You", which is not the Beatles song but a beautiful and poignant song written by Johnny Mercer in the 1930's. Listen to the lyrics and they are just as relevant today as when they were written nearly 70 years ago.
We were very fortunate to have had among us an artist like Susannah McCorkle who had enormous talent and who could seemingly handle any type of song given to her. We should be grateful that she was able to introduce us to the works of so many composers and with her help, many of them found a new popularity. It is wonderful that so many of these great songs, written so many years ago, have survived and we have Susannah and others to thank for it.

All around great album for a jazz newbie! Can't wait for more! 12 May 2008
By Mark Zimmerman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Susannah McCorkle's "No More Blues" had to have been recorded during a happier time in her life. Fortunately she left a very full discography, and after falling in love with this cd I've got a few more on my "most wanted" list.

There is certainly nothing Blue about this album. Even songs you think should possibly have a hint of the blues always have a ray of sunshine in them. I love all the tunes, but Gerry Mulligan's "The Ballad of Pearly Sue" is probably my favorite. Sound is as though she's singing right at you. And, if I haven't made myself clear, performances are all top-notch. So many of the songs were already familiar to me (or, is it my generation "baby boomer"). I wonder if GenX boys and girls will recognize all the tunes here as I do?

So, to make a long story short, reckoning by my bipolar bear rating system of from 1-11 for both sound and performance Ms. McCorkle gets a straight 11/11 or by Amazon's 1-5 scale a perfect 5. If you're like me and have been mainly into classical music try a little of McCorkle's jazz to brighten your day. I think it will give you pass key to a brand new world of music; one that you will find enhances your overall cd collection.

Mark Zimmerman, the Bipolar Bear!

Great album 29 July 2002
By Mike - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Susannah McCorkle has a smooth, polished voice that manages to drip with impressive emotion. Each track has a different feel, and it all manages to be together and cohesive, on the level of Kind of Blue and Blue Train.
Many of the songs are unfamiliar to me, but they're rendered quite impressively. The instrumentation is neither lacking nor overpowering, and the clarinet/tenor embellishments by Ken Peplowski are tasteful and appropriate.
All in all, a very nice vocal album, highly recommended.
