Album Review

Rosemary Clooney continued her string of jazz sets for Concord in 1985 with this lyrical program. Clooney interprets ten ballads with the assistance of tenor saxophonist Scott Hamilton, cornetist Warren Vaché, guitarist Ed Bickert, pianist John Oddo (her musical director), bassist Chuck Israels and drummer Jake Hanna. Clooney's versions of such songs as "The Shadow of Your Smile," "A Nightingale Sang in Berkeley Square," "Easy Living" and "It Never Entered My Mind" are filled with sincere feeling and rank with the best versions ever. However, a general sameness of tempo keeps this album from being quite as highly recommended as most of Clooney's other Concord records, although it is well worth picking up.
