At what would be the final concert and recording of her extraordinary life and career in music, Rosemary Clooney’s one-of-a-kind voice, perfectly nuanced phrasing, and unmatched interpretation of lyrics remained undiminished. Clearly inspired and energized in this magnificent setting—performing live in Hawaii with Matt Catingub’s Big Kahuna and the Copa Cat Pack big band and the Honolulu Pops Symphony Orchestra—Rosemary delivered an unforgettable live performance, filled with verve, vigor, sensitivity and candor. But then again, that was always her way. From a heartfelt rendition of the patriotic anthem “God Bless America” (this rousing concert performance took place shortly after 9/11), to the touching “Sentimental Journey,” to an insightful delivery of “They Can’t Take That Away from Me,” Rosemary Clooney proved once again that she was truly one the greatest interpreters of the great American Songbook. Rosemary’s final concert—preserved here forevermore—is the ultimate keepsake and remembrance from the music icon who will forever be America’s favorite “girl singer” and the “Queen of Traditional Pop.”
