I had not heard about Barbara Cook’s passing ): I saw her live quite a few times and two of her CD’s are among my all-time favorites (Close As Pages in a Book – a tribute to Dorothy Fields) and Oscar Winners! – a tribute to Oscar Hammerstein II), plus her live recordings and her cast show albums (particularly She Loves Me and her contributions to Follies In Concert). She was the cream of the crop! (:September 26, 2017 at 10:23 am #1202223998
