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. ~ Scott Yanow
