Rosemary Clooney was an incomparable musical storyteller. Artfully blurring the lines between jazz and traditional pop, this American musical icon fashioned her own inimitable vocal style by simply singing songs the only way she knew how—directly and honestly. There was perhaps no better vehicle for showcasing Rosemary’s uniquely unhurried, uncluttered, matter-of-fact delivery of a lyric than the ballad. Carefully selected from the numerous top-shelf recordings that Rosemary made during her Concord Records years—an uncompromising artistic renaissance period for Clooney in what was an extraordinary career in music—this Ballad Essentials collection spotlights some of the very best ballad performances by America’s most beloved girl singer.
