Hearts and Minds

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - William Pearl
Give Susannah McCorkle a great song, and she's off and running. Thankfully, Hearts and Minds, her 16th album, is chock-full of them. The masters of the great American songbook are well represented -- the Gershwin's "Love Is Here to stay," Rodgers and Hammerstein's "Love Look Away," and Schwartz and Dietz's "Haunted Heart" are nestled among such other classics as "For All We Know," "It Could Happen to You," and "I Can Dream, Can't I?" But McCorkle isn't stuck in the past. She also takes on terrific tunes by one of the strongest, and cleverest, of contemporary composers, Dave Frishberg; the great Brazilian songwriter Ivan Lins; and the able team of Simon Wallace and Fran...

Barnes & Noble - William Pearl
Give Susannah McCorkle a great song, and she's off and running. Thankfully, Hearts and Minds, her 16th album, is chock-full of them. The masters of the great American songbook are well represented -- the Gershwin's "Love Is Here to stay," Rodgers and Hammerstein's "Love Look Away," and Schwartz and Dietz's "Haunted Heart" are nestled among such other classics as "For All We Know," "It Could Happen to You," and "I Can Dream, Can't I?" But McCorkle isn't stuck in the past. She also takes on terrific tunes by one of the strongest, and cleverest, of contemporary composers, Dave Frishberg; the great Brazilian songwriter Ivan Lins; and the able team of Simon Wallace and Fran Landesman. McCorkle also slips in a funny original, "The Computer Age (in Motion)," proving that she should try her hand at songwriting with more frequency in the future. Throughout, the dexterous and subtle singer interacts beautifully with a band made up of such excellent players as pianist Allen Farnham, saxophonist Dick Oatts, and bassists Steve Gilmore and Dennis Irwin.
All Music Guide - Paula Edelstein
Susannah McCorkle's 16th release available through Concord begins with "I Can Dream, Can't I" and ends with "I Don't Want ro Set the World on Fire," two highly desirous songs that may reflect the intentions of the dynamic vocalist, but needless to say after 15 successful releases cannot begin to measure the tremendous impact she has had as one of the most expressive singers on the jazz scene since the mid-'70s. McCorkle utilizes two rhythm sections, her longtime musical director/arranger/pianist Allen Farnham, guitarist Paul Meyers, and tenor saxophonist Dick Oatts on straight-ahead, Brazilian-influenced and swing compositions. They span nearly 70 years say a lot about human nature and what people feel and think about. She handles humor on three Dave Frishberg songs, tackles a funny song about depression on "Down," sings of fleeting romance and contemporary relationships on "For All We Know," and "Haunted Heart" and the Ivan Lins song "Evolution." Susannah McCorkle has the remarkable capability to bring rarely heard songs back to life through updated interpretations and 21st century appeal.
