Recorded in 1959, A Touch Of Tabasco is a fine pairing. Whereas Eartha Kitt was caught on a bad day (she blames also a clash of egos), Rosemary Clooney makes it work, at least to the extent that any "thrush" could be expected to mesh with the brash sound of Prado. Considering Kitt and Clooney, it is no surprise, really. And with such powerhouse covers as "Sway (Quien Sera)," "Bali H'ai," and "You Do Something to Me," she hardly could have failed to delight. The rest is nearly as enjoyable, and liners by Jose Ferrer add a nice finishing touch, like tabasco. ~ Tony Wilds
