Blue Rose

LP (Item 45212) Columbia, 1956 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.70 38

Fantastic stuff, and proof that Rosemary Clooney was always one heck of a great singer – with strengths in jazz that you didn't always hear in her pop work! As you'd guess from the cover, Duke Ellington's leading the group on the album – and most of the tracks here are older Ellington standards, reworked with bold vocal lines from Clooney – in a way that's right up there with any of the usual singers with Ellington's band! Players include Clark Terry, Cat Anderson, Johnny Hodges, Paul Gonsalves, and Harry Carney – and titles include "I'm Checkin Out", "Mood Indigo", "Blue Rose", "Grievin", "Hey Baby", and "Passion Flower". (Original 6 eye pressing with deep groove. Cover has some aging.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

The album features larger arrangements by Richard Wess – but still has a light jazzy feel, ... LP, Vinyl record album
