For the younger folk out there, Rosemary Clooney was George Clooney's aunt. She had a remarkably warm and graceful way of singing. She fell out of sight in the 1960s because of some personal problems, but came back strong in the 1980s with some wonderful American-songbook type records. Here (in 1984) she sings one of Irving Berlin's greatest songs, "What'll I Do?". I tormented myself with this song after a particularly painful break-up, but now it's just an old, sweet friend.
I'm not crazy about a lot of Nancy Wilson's work, but paired here with jazz master George Shearing and his quintet, from the 1961 album The Swingin's Mutual, she's a knockout singing the wonderful "On Green Dolphin Street".
