(2-LP set) Exquisite Jazz Vocalist Rosemary Clooney mesmerizes with unsurpassed craft alongside Cuban percussionist Perez Prado to create lively, colorful music. This 1959 release was the only album vocalist Rosemary Clooney and Cuban band-leader/conductor Perez Prado recorded together and the first for Rosemary on her new label, RCA Victor. The music is lively and colorful but retains Clooney's smooth and mellow character, and Prado's trademark arrangements and experiments with percussion, texture, and harmony.
This merging of Latin and American standards is a tour de force that features some of the hottest session players in the biz including drummers Leo Acosta and Earl Palmer, as well as horn players Paul Horn and Ollie Mitchell. Audiophile 180 Gram 45rpm Double LP. Mastered by Bernie Grundman from the original analog master tapes & pressed at RTI. Deluxe laminated gatefold jackets. Limited edition of 2,500.
