Album Review

From her productive Concord period, Mothers & Daughters is among Rosemary Clooney's strongest sellers. Though tenor saxophonist Scott Hamilton is missing, the selections (some of which deal with children) are often overly sentimental, and the jazz content (despite some brief spots for the reeds of Gary Foster) is nearly nonexistent, Clooney is in reasonably good voice (she was 68 at the time) and it's good to have the classic "Sisters" (from Holiday Inn) on record.

Terrific Version of Turn Around....

For those of you looking for different versions of the folk song "Turn Around"--a song featured in a memorable Kodak TV commercial in the 1960's--this album has a terrific version of the song. It even has a third verse many of the other versions lack. Interestingly, it's a duet with Keith Carradine...and how he ended up on an album entitled "Mothers and Daughters" is beyond me! But he and Rosemary Clooney do the song very, very well together. " Where are you going, my little one, little one? Where are you going, my baby, my own? Turn around and you're two, turn around and you're four, turn around and you're a young girl going out of the door...."

Songs I would have chosen myself

These are classic songs written by some of the best songwriter's ever. If I were a recording artist, I would pick many of these songs myself. As a mom, these are things that I want my children to know. I don't know how this CD escaped my attention all these years.

Before the rock & roll revolution, Rosemary Clooney was one of the most popular female singers in America, rising to superstardom during the golden age of adult pop. Like many of her peers in the so-called "girl singer" movement — Doris Day, Kay Starr, Peggy Lee, Patti Page, et al. — Clooney's style was grounded in jazz, particularly big-band swing. She wasn't an improviser or a technical virtuoso, and lacked the training to stand on an equal footing with the greatest true jazz singers....
