Price Comparison


After finishing her period as one of {|the Clooney Sisters|} with {|Tony Pastor|}'s orchestra, Rosemary Clooney became famous for her pop hits on the Columbia label in the early '50s. Although never really a jazz singer on a consistent basis, Clooney had a few opportunities to record in jazz settings in the 1950s, most notably an album with Duke Ellington's orchestra. This sampler has four of the numbers with Ellington, three songs with a {|Benny Goodman|} small group, a few selections from the combo album Tenderly, numbers from sets titled Ring Around Rosie, Red Garters, and On Stage, and a song apiece with the orchestras of {|Percy Faith|}, {|Paul Weston|}, and {|Nelson Riddle|}. The repertoire is of high quality, and Clooney fares quite well. In fact, these were her most jazz-oriented recordings until she signed with Concord in the late '70s. Highlights include How About You, I'm Checkin' Out, Goombye, Hey Baby, Doncha Go 'Way Mad, Sophisticated Lady, and Goodbye.
