"Ever since her emergence in the late 1970's, Susannah McCorkle has been one of the top jazz-influenced singers interpreting music from the golden era of the American popular song (1925-55), along with superior later works. No mere revivalist who copies or re-creates the past, McCorkle's renditions of vintage material are so fresh and uplifting that her versions differ substantially (and in some cases are better) than the originals. For From Broken Hearts To Blue Skies, her 17th album (most of the first 16 are currently available on Concord or Jazz Alliance), Susannah McCorkle decided to perform an eclectic set, in the tradition of her "From Bessie To Brazil" and "From Broadway To Bebop" releases. As the title implies, the songs span a wide emotional range, from depths of despair to total optimism, expresisng all the stages in between: frustration, disappointment, hurt, strength, guilt, anger, nostalgia, hope, and the search for love and happiness...Currently at the peak of her powers and still improving with age, Susannah McCorkle continues to rise in stature and evolve as a singer. Very few are on her level today as an interpreter of the classic American popular song. From Broken Hearts To Blue Skies is her latest gem." - Scott Yanow, Editor, All Music Guide To Jazz
