Songs from the Neighborhood: The Music of Mister Rogers with Maureen McGovern and Others Wins Grammy Award


About the win, Maureen McGovern said "I was so struck by the simplicity, honesty, sweet beauty and life-affirming messages of Fred Roger's songs. In recording "This Is Just The Day," I tried to capture that carefree, why-not-take-a-chance, joyful spirit that was at the heart of Fred

Audience members, who have come to see our Little Women Broadway National Tour (parents and grandparents alike) have told me they remember Fred very fondly from either their's or their children's childhoods and have purchased the CD to pass on the torch to the next generation in their families.

"Songs From The Neighborhood" is the dreamchild of producer, Dennis Scott, who put together a collection of 13 songs recorded by caring artists who all share a love and respect for Fred Rogers and his music. I am proud to be one of them and thrilled that the project has beenhonored with a Grammy."

A portion of proceeds from the sale of Songs from the Neighborhood will be donated to the non-profit Fred Rogers Fund, at Family Communications, Inc.

PLUS Special Bonus DVD featuring each artist performing in the studio with personal interviews!



Bill Meade asked if I was interested in recording some additional Harold Arlen music for a re-release of my Out of this World McGovern Sings Arlen CD. An enthusiastic "Yes!" was my response! I LOVE Harold Arlen's music!

Since his centennial celebration is around the corner, I'm thrilled to add two new bonus cuts to this collection - personal Arlen favorites of mine. Jeff Harris' romantic chamber arrangement of "Let's Fall In Love," captures the essence of the self-titled 1934 film and his wistful adaptation of "Optimistic Voices" from "The Wizard of Oz" breathes new life into this favorite little gem from my childhood.

I hope you enjoy listening to this Arlen tribute as much as we enjoyed recording it! Harold Arlen's music takes me OUT OF THIS WORLD!!!

When I was asked to consider recording several additional cuts for the re-release of my beloved Bergman CD, I was thrilled. The overwhelming dilemma is selecting material for the original CD was what to leave out!

These three new recordings contain two more songs I have always loved by the Bergmans and their respective composers, Michel Legrand and Dave Grusin -- and also a rarely heard gem by the Bergmans and jazz great, Roger Kellaway.

"What matters most" is hearing the lyrics of Alan and Marilyn Bergman..........I can't wait to do Volume II.
This CD is dedicated to the heroes of the Muscular Dystrophy Association who make "Ordinary Miracles" happen every day.
