Sad indeed, the passing of Rosie Clooney. She was a wonderful singer who
gave true allegiance to the melody, with gently phrasing, and you could
always hear the words clearly...something that's gotten to be a lost art.
While some did not consider her a "jazz: singer, I thought she was quite
comfortable singing among some very talented jazzers like Warren Vache,
Scott Hamilton, John Otto and others, and her respect for the work of fine
composers and the standards set her apart.
I for on miss her already.
