Rosemary Clooney often worked with arrangers who stressed the pop or cabaret aspects of her singing. Of course, she was also a superb jazz vocalist, and, when paired with artists such as pianist/composer Duke Ellington and clarinetist Benny Goodman, her musical gift shone even brighter.
The serene, melancholy "Memories of You" underscores the affinity shared between Clooney and the Goodman trio. This track begins with Goodman's unembellished reading of the tune. However, when Clooney sings, Goodman and pianist Teddy Wilson answer her with virtuosic countermelodies. On this selection, Clooney sings in a lower key, which adds an extra dose of sultriness to the proceedings. Another significant track is "I'm Checkin' Out, Goombye," which showcases the triple threat of Clooney, Ellington, and Goodman. On this tune, Ellington's arrangement sparkles with rich colors and textures, Goodman's solo is light and whimsical, and Clooney's voice is articulate yet carefree.
