Cool Crooners


Cool Crooners
Artist Description

The word 'croon' has two possible originations. It may be derived from a black slang meaning 'mellow singing' or the German 'Kronen' meaning to groan or lament. Whatever the origins it applies to singing sentimental love songs and ballads, particularly those which were at the forefront of the music scene prior to the rock 'n' roll era. This is a wonderful 'pot pourri' of the best crooners ever to have recorded. The likes of Nat King Cole, Bing Crosby, Frankie Laine, Dean Martin and Frank Sinatra help to carry these beautiful melodies to an unequalled plain. This CD makes a serious and outstanding addition to those works.
