For the jazz listener who likes the jazz vocals of Rosemary Clooney in a Big Band setting, and for those wishing to have a nice 2 CD set of her songs over the years, this is a great item to have in the home library, as a gift for that special friend, and as a collection placed in your local Public Library for library patron enjoyment. Rosemary Clooney had a memorable voice, and this 32 song collection shares that intimate voice's magical sensitivity with the audience.
Highly recommended. This 2 CD set is a must-have for Rosemary Clooney fans.
