Still on the Road

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Scott Yanow
On this CD, Rosemary Clooney broke away from using a jazz combo with Scott Hamilton and instead is accompanied by a big band mostly arranged and conducted by her musical director, pianist John Oddo.

Among the highlights are a surprisingly touching version of "Back Home Again In Indiana," the witty "Let's Get Away from It All," Willard Robison's obscure "Moonlight Mississippi," and a delightful version of "Road to Morocco," on which Clooney sings with Jack Sheldon.

Rosemary Clooney's voice still had 95 percent of its power on this easily recommended set.
