I have a special place in my heart for Rosemary Clooney's 1990s albums: by this point, her voice had shrunk considerably, and she relied more on stealthy phrasing and her effortless sense of swing to sustain a musical line. However, her vocal tone was now burnished to a warm glow, and she assumed the qualities of an earth mother, dispensing wisdom and comfort through her songs. This album from 1992 is a good example of this, and benefits from some excellent song choices and tasteful arrangements by John Oddo. A song like "Lovers After All" (with a wonderful lyric by Richard Rodney Bennett) is delivered as a warm, glowing meditation, and she also finds the gentleness within the normally swaggering "The Best is Yet To Come" (in Rosemary's hands this song sounds like a ruminative valediction).

Nobody has ever delivered Dave Frishberg's on-the-road classic "Sweet Kentucky Ham" with more sensitivity than Rosemary, and I also challenge you to find a more compelling version of "Wave" (perhaps only Susannah McCorkle's); the same goes for "More Than You Know".

This album is a treat, one of this cabaret treasure's very best.

'Girl Singer' is a poignant,happy -sad collection of familiar and not so familiar jazz standards. Backed by an impressive horn and reed section,Rosemary puts in a performance that summons up all her years of topsy-turvy heartache and happiness. Of Love gone wrong and love new found.Her voice is a little frayed but she has superb control and unrivaled ability to bring out the nuance of any song she covers. Rosemary also has a sense of humour, witness her work on 'Miss Otis Regrets' and of course she is always up for a shot at happiness, hence the sheer oomph of her performance on 'The Best is Yet to Come'

This is a lovely jazz- cabaret album.The band, arrangements and production are top class as is the song collection. Rosemary Clooney is a class act. Soothing and relaxed her voice might be, but beneth all that, there is the capacity to convey all the emotions from regret to loneliness and the hope that romance can bring,
convincingly. Want to try a track? sample the beautiful, 'Lovers After All'. Like this and you'll love the album.
