Concord Records presents musical moments from a bygone era when singers were featured in the Big Band arena ~ loved and respected by all is the "Girl Singer". Producer Carl E. Jefferson gives us "Rosemary Clooney Sings Ballads", featuring ten tracks of lyrical interpretation with expressions of ease filling the air. This album speaks in a special way leaving no room for doubt with "THANKS FOR THE MEMORY", the Bob Hope signature theme is a real treat that Clooney completely overwhelms her fans with ~ "A NIGHTINGALE SANG IN BERKELEY SQUARE", only Rosie's rare talent and distinctive voice could make this tune a hit again ~ "BEWITCHED, BOTHERED AND BEWILDERED", the unforgettable Rodgers & Hart song from "Pal Joey", a musical moment perfectly performed by Clooney taking us back in time ~ "DAYS OF WINE & ROSE" along with "EASY LIVING", blends warmth and her joy of singing, she's at the top of her form.
Outstanding arrangements are wall to wall by John Oddo, gives each tune a timeless touch ~ featuring the one-and-only Rosie. Those who take a listen to this album will agree, the "Girl Singer" is a crowd pleaser ~ her memory will never fade...gotta love it!
