"Rosemary's song "Obama's Recession Blues" couldn't be more timely.  In her powerful voice it expresses the mood of millions of people, yet it brings hope to them by using Obama's actual words. Those words reinforce the world's faith in his actions."

 “Great vocals, soulful, very Detroit, Aretha Franklenish. Great horn arrangement. Very spirited and energetic record.  Very clever and obviously topical lyric - easily relatable and also delivered in a sly, irreverent style.

Great record, Awe inspiring. Rosemary, you nailed it, big time!"

Subject: REVIEW of Rosemary Storm’s CD of Xmas Songs ... 

 

Dear Rosemary ~

 

It would not be right for me to refrain from telling you how much
I am so, so, so taken by these Christmas renditions. They are so mature. Absolutely terrific singing and dignified arrangements. They are moving in the way we would all like Christmas to be. 

 

I especially enjoyed Old Toy Trains because I've never heard it before. I would not be at all surprised if you wrote it. I don't think I have ever heard you sounding better. These songs are centered and calm, attractive as a crackling fire. I am almost envious that you can sing and play so well. 

 

All your years of hard work ring true in these beguiling renditions, Rosemary. Real songs, real singing. It feels almost rare these days. These songs come across as a gift, not as an attempt to impress, so they have a timeless quality. 

 

Maybe you don't feel these songs are that special, but they are consistently appealing - something the listener can return to. 

 

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays. - Alan
