As is usual for Rosemary Clooney's very consistent string of Concord albums, this is a jazz-oriented set with the highly appealing singer interpreting veteran standards from the '30s and '40s plus a couple of newer songs (Dave Frishberg's "Do You Miss New York?" and "I Wish You Love"). Using a fine sextet with her favorite horn players (tenor man Scott Hamilton and cornetist Warren Vaché) plus her musical director/pianist John Oddo and guitarist Buck Pizzarelli, Clooney is heard in top form. John Pizzarelli makes a guest appearance, sharing the vocal and playing guitar on "It's Only a Paper Moon"; other highlights include "As Long as I Live," "I Ain't Got Nothin' But the Blues," and "We'll Be Together Again." Recommended.
