There are “girl singers” and then there is the Girl Singer, Rosemary Clooney. During her years on Concord—the last twenty-five years of her extraordinary life in music—Rosemary Clooney recorded some of the most musically satisfying albums of her career. On Girl Singer she pulled out all the stops, singing a superb collection of songs, backed by a big band of hand-picked musicians. Rosemary’s arrangers, John Oddo and Peter Matz, take full advantage of the textures and tonal colors of the big band orchestra, crafting tailor-made arrangements that beautifully complement her rich, alto voice, inimitable phrasing and perfect timing.

As you would expect from any Rosemary Clooney recording on Concord, Girl Singer is a class act in every respect, right down to the liner notes by Linda Ronstadt, and the cover artwork by Tony Bennett. Take it from Linda Ronstadt, “This is a wonderful collection of songs, and Rosemary tells the stories in full-blown Technicolor.” Now, with the remarkable resolution of SACD, you’ll hear the kaleidoscopic colors of the big band like never before, and you’ll swear that Rosemary is right there in the room, singing just for you.
