Judy & Liza Make Beautiful Music Together

Judy Garland adn Liza Minnelli

If I say "Judy and Liza", I bet almost everyone instantly got an image of a mother and daughter, both iconic actresses and singers who battled their demons quite publicly. I have no problem admitting their music is still part of the soundtrack to my day. Well, the early 1960s was the time this duo were in their heyday, with Liza in her late teens and Judy in her 40s. In fact, the following clip was part of The Judy Garland Show, the television show cancelled after the first season. Thankfully, it did leave video of the two singing several different songs, including the following. Judy and Liza sang a medley that included the songs: "We Could Make Such Beautiful Music Together", written by Henry Manners and Robert Sour; "The Best Is Yet To Come" written by the brilliant Cy Coleman and Carolyn Leigh; "Bye-Bye, Baby" by Leo Robin and the immortal Jule Styne for the Broadway musical Gentlemen Prefer Blonds and later sung on film by Marilyn Monroe; "Together (Wherever We Go)" from the musical Gypsy, written by hall of fame writers Stephen Sondheim and Jule Styne. Enjoy Judy and Liza, recorded about 49 years ago.

Thanks for modern technology, you can purchase this and many other duets sung by Judy Garland with other bright stars on iTunes.
