Individually, Rosemary Clooney’s albums giving tribute to the great American song-writers of approximately the middle of the twentieth century seemed interesting, and even illuminating, as she subtly evoked the intentions of those writers by her straightforward delivery of their tunes. Little did the listeners of the six CD’s in Rosemary Clooney: The Songbook Collection realize at the time of their release in 1979 and throughout the 1980’s that a larger perspective enveloped the incremental growth of Clooney’s discography focused on a single theme.

Slowly but surely, Clooney, with her regular hornmen Scott Hamilton and Warren Vach?, built a true “songbook” that’s unlike any other of the past few decades in its scope and consistency. The only other series of albums of the same inspiration and dedication in the second half of the twentieth century would be Ella Fitzgerald’s classic Songbook tributes on Verve in the 1950’s. Indeed, both singers honor many of the same songwriters.

Under the auspices of Carl Jefferson and by extension the Concord Records he founded, Clooney not only revived her career after an unfortunate lull, but also she developed a series of albums, continuing even today, that distinguish her as one of the premier interpreters of standards. With an uncluttered and straightforward approach, Clooney has won the admiration of singers and jazz musicians. Her sure sense of swing and her no-nonsense approach, with little deviation from the lyrics that the masters wrote, have remained intact ever since she started singing with her sister in Tony Pastor’s band in Kentucky. Her adherence to the original intentions of those song-writers and her implicit pulse, inspiring the musicians who accompany her, led Scott Hamilton to accurately note: “Her sense of time is as solid as Harry Edison’s. It’s just there.
