档案:
身为好莱坞巨星乔治克隆尼的姑姑,来自肯塔基州的萝丝玛丽克隆尼(Rosemary Clooney, 1928-2002)在五十年前,可是当时全美最耀眼的流行歌手。当时她那清脆悦耳的嗓音,演唱抒情歌曲的能力,在随着她年纪渐长后,添加韵味的歌喉,让她的诠释更具有巨星风范,也让她晋身伟大爵士名家之列。
 
她在四零年代白人开始演唱爵士乐的第一代歌手,爱尔兰裔的她,四零年代初出道时,原是在大乐团中演唱的爵士歌手,当时她二十二岁,之后被制作人不断雕凿,让她原本清纯的爵士唱腔,添加了更具风味的流行腔调,并从一九五一年开始,连续六年都不断登上畅销榜。她在一九四六年灌录了第一张唱片,就是由哥伦比亚公司发行的,之后她在一九五一年第一次靠唱片大红,让她有机会和平克劳斯贝、丹尼凯等人一起登上大银幕,进而促成日后和克劳斯贝长期合作的开始。这段期间,她开始从爵士向流行音乐靠拢,显示她的歌喉在这方面有着相当的票房。但同时她却与著名的爵士乐编曲人涅尔森瑞多谈起了婚外情,更因此让她原本和演员荷西费瑞的婚姻岌岌可危,进而动摇了她的歌唱事业,使她被迫在七年代早期退休。一直到七六年再度和平克劳斯贝重聚登台后,让她重返爵士圈,延续了她的歌唱事业和声名,她开始又重出歌坛,并将曲风调整回爵士领域。一直到2002年她过世为止。
 
纵观克隆尼多彩多姿一生,充满了传奇。不仅因为她一家都是艺人,也因为她自己在银幕、电视和舞台上的魅力,让她得以出入豪门之家,一九六八年肯尼迪总统遇刺身亡当时,她人就在旁边,身为甘的好友,此事让她身心受创,一度因此淡出演艺圈,并因此染上毒瘾和严重的忧郁症。她的感情生活也随着她的情绪变化,而起起伏伏,前后结婚三次的她,育有五名子女。晚年,这位终身烟不离手的出色女歌手,因为肺癌离世。
 
克隆尼是一位对歌词掌握特别敏感的爵士歌手,这也是聆听她歌曲最让人满足的地方,她的情绪适切,句子转折出入非常有品味且细腻,虽然歌艺的基础来自于爵士,却不一定总是在唱爵士歌曲,七零年代后期复出后,她的演唱则回归到早期大乐团的摇摆曲风,这时,洗尽风华的她,给了美国爵士音乐最大的礼赞,用最纯净洗练的爵士乐风,唱出最经典的爵士老歌,让她在爵士史上的地位更加的确立。

Vocalist Rosemary Clooney's rise to fame in the '50s came on the strength of songs that in many instances were without question novelty tunes; she's not a vocal improviser like Carmen McRae, Betty Carter, or Sarah Vaughan. She is an excellent lyric interpreter, has fine timing, phrases skillfully and intelligently, and performs with the dramatic quality evident among all great singers. Her background and foundation are jazz, even if her technique doesn't always adhere to rigid jazz scrutiny. She joined the Columbia roster in 1950 and made several hits for them, among them &You're Just in Love,& &Beautiful Brown Eyes,& &Half As Much,& &Hey There,& the number one hit &Come on-A My House,& and &If Teardrops Were Pennies.& Clooney had 13 Top 40 hits in the early '50s, among them duets with Guy Mitchell and Marlene Dietrich. The rock revolution and a decision to spend more time with her family resulted in Clooney going into semi-retirement. She returned in the late '70s, singing with renewed power and confidence while making swing-influenced dates and combo sessions for Concord. She's maintained that relationship through the '80s and '90s, doing standards, repertory albums, and demonstrating a resiliency and energy that validates her position among the fine jazz-based vocalists in American music.
