A historic meeting of two giants of jazz and one of the great female pop vocalists of the era, this collaboration showcases the genius of Ellington and Billy Strayhorn's compositions, and the ease with which Clooney translated vocals. The album was originally conceived by Strayhorn after seeing Duke perform in New York City. Rosemary Clooney was the perfect choice to deliver the songs as Duke crafted them, resulting in a magnificent recording that now contains 2 bonus tracks from the original recording session.
