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."
