The undisputed "Queen of Traditional Pop" and arguably the finest interpreter of the Great American Songbook regardless of musical genres, Rosemary Clooney’s sense of time, nuance and phrasing remain unmatched. A singer so distinctive and self-assured, Rosemary possesses the remarkable ability to transform even throwaway novelty tunes into lasting works of art. But the artistic genius of Rosemary Clooney becomes most apparent, and is best appreciated, when one hears her interpreting truly timeless songs by the great American songwriters. That’s exactly what you’ll hear in these two gems—Rosemary Clooney Sings the Music of Harold Arlen and Rosemary Clooney Sings the Music of Irving Berlin. And that’s precisely why they have become enduring Rosemary Clooney classics.
"I don’t think we have ever been, or ever will be, blessed with the presence of a greater interpreter of the Great American Songbook."—Peter Straub
