Teresa Fischer Presents MORE THAN YOU KNOW at 53 Above
More Than You Know explores Rosemary Clooney's musical choices and career after her return to the stage and recording studio following a mental collapse in 1968. Her journey was often difficult and painful but she persevered to become one of the greatest interpreters of song in the 20th century. No longer "the girl next door" - Rosemary returned as a consummate musician with a warmer tone, a love for swing and an open heart that shared joy, pain and the wisdom of her years and no better artist to showcase her songbook than Teresa Fischer with themes of love, loss, joy, and second chances in this tribute to the "Girl Singer". Teresa Fischer has long wanted to sing this songbook and now is the perfect moment as the richness of her own career helps her to understand these songs in a way that the inimitable Rosemary Clooney did and as only Teresa can today.
More Than You know is chocked full of Clooney classics like Love You Didn't Do Right by Me from her starring role in White Christmas, Come On-A My House which was her first Number 1 smash hit and, Hey There which cemented her as a major singing sensation of the 1950s to little known gems like I'm The Big Bad Singer written by Merv Griffin and Have I Stayed Too Long At the Fair by Billy Barnes. "Expect masterful renditions that can only be done by Teresa Fischer" enthused Frank Calo, event Producer.
More Than You Know is directed by Kent Cozad whose cabaret credits include Through the Years at the Wild Project, Joyful Noise at The Duplex and What's Next? at Don't Tell Mama as well as many full-length plays.
Paul Chamlin, who has worked with many outstanding singers such as Anita Gillette, Ervin Drake and Len Cariou, leads the way as Musical Director. Jon Roche on bass and Hiroyuki Matsuura on percussion round out this outstanding group of musicians.
