You gotta listen to Barbara Cook:
I love her comments about song interpretation, about the invasion of melisma into singing in general and Broadway in particular. I also love her purist perspective. Which I have to say I agree with. Example: early Sinatra? pure and beautiful. Later Sinatra? It put her off with all his added "Baby"s etc.
Cannot believe she is 77 years old! She sounds pretty much the same as ever.
