Clooney still swings with the best of them!
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Because of the early, light novelty numbers Rosemary Clooney recorded in the fifties, fare like "Botcha Me, Botcha You" (?), I've consistently avoided purchasing her music. In a weak moment I bought "Sings The Music Of Cole Porter", more interested in hearing how her voice has aged over the years. To my elation, this album is a terrific compilation of Porter standards sung and swung by a master jazz stylist. Clooney's voice, gritty and growly with age, bounces from one meaningful note to the next with stunning warmth, humor, and clarity, Her phrasing and timing are perfect, her interpretations of Porter's sharp lyrics impeccable, her voice in my opinion so much more interesting now than it was in her so-called prime. Kudos to Concord Jazz for working with Clooney in recording this and her many other great jazz albums. I am currently a huge fan and this is my first and favorite CD."
I am 22 years old and I really enjoy this CD.

"I am 22 and I love jazz and jazz singers, Rosie may not be an improvisor but she has a jazz feeling in everything she sings, and she does a swell job on these Porter classics with help from a red hot jazz combo. Recommended if you like jazz singing. Also highly recommeded Clooney discs "Blue Rose" with The Ellington Orchestra,and "Swing Around Rosie" With Buddy Cole's Trio(only available as a Japanese import, but worth searching for)"

"Rosemary really swings on this album, her very best in my opinion. A tasty little combo backs her up perfectly, with yummy piano, vibes, flute or sax solos and a driving bass that's just perfect for these songs. Whoever arranged these tunes knew just when to swing (In the Still of the Night, I Get a Kick) and when to slow it down (I Concentrate on You). Rosemary's throaty voice is simply WONDERFUL, and she swings like nobody's business. I heard a Porter song I'd never heard before (always a treat): "Get Out of Town," and just understand and appreciate his songs better because she sings the verses, not just the chorus, as on "My Heart Belongs to Daddy" and "Just One of Those Things." Someone has said that Rosemary just flat-out loved singing, and it REALLY shows on this record. #1 on my disc-player. "It don't mean a thing if it ain't got that swing." 10 stars out of 5."
