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.
