Night & the Music: Rosemary Clooney, Barbara Cook, & Julie Wilson, Inside the World of Cabaret
Deborah Grace Winer (au); Rex Reed (fr). They were stars for the first time in the 1950s -- Rosemary Clooney on records & in movies, Barbara Cook in musical comedy, Julie Wilson in clubs. At a time when “classic Amer. pop” is finding new audiences, these three women forged ahead as performers in an old tradition. Winer brings to life the world of nightclub singing in the 1990s: the rebirth of the cabaret form, the reasons why it is still an impossible way to earn a living, & the magic that makes people keep trying. Also includes a survey of the current scene, including prominent singers Karen Akers, Ann Hampton Callaway, Mary Cleere Haran, Andrea Marcovicci, Linda Ronstadt, & Michael Feinstein; & the others: the musicians, the club owners, the promoters & media figures. B&W photos.
