At the time RCA Victor released two hit combination Lp, one was Abbie Lane with Tito Puente & His Orchestra and Rosemary Clooney with Perez Prado & His Orchestra, the album title they picked for the latter was "A Touch Of Tabasco". Unfortunately some 20+ years ago this album was discontinued and leftover copies were very hard or impossible to find. With the emerging of the internet some folks who owned copies asked for large sums of money for their copies. Luckily one day about two years ago, I found that this album had been converted from analog to digital and therefore CD by Japan's BMG/RCA, which explained its total absence from North American music markets. At long last this album has come back to us but in limited quantities. You will greatly enjoy listening to this classic as Rosemary sings old favorites backed by Perez Prado's phenomenal Mambo Jazz Band,like "Corazon De Melon", "Like A Woman", "I Only Have Eyes For You", "Magic Is The Moonlight"aka "Te Quiero Dijiste", "In A Little Spanish Town",
"Mack The Knife"aka "Moritat", "Bali Hai","You Do Something To Me","Cu-Cu-Rru-Cu-Cu Paloma","I Got Plenty O'Nuttin", "Sway"aka Quien Sera" and "Adios".Read more ›
It's a kind of album to listen at with a smile on the face. Tabasco makes me happy.
Clooney's voice is unique. Her unmistakable timbre and phrasing proves that she is one of the best singers among her pairs.
Prado's orchestration is so spontaneous and pure swing. It's latin and jazzy simultaneously.
I like to listen Tabasco alone or along Rosie Solves the Swingin Riddle, Swings Softly, Love and Beautiful Ballads. In spite of the different moods, the songs go very well together when you shuffle them. The result is surprising.
When in latin mood, I sugest to combine Tabasco with Latin Alla Lee/Ole Alla Lee/Guitars a la Lee (Peggy Lee), El Senor Bing (Bing Crosby), Latin in a Satin Mood (Julie London) and Latin for Lovers (Doris Day).
My high favorites songs of Tabasco: Corazón de Melón, Like a Woman, Magic is the Moonlight, In a Little Spanish Town, Mack the Knife, You Do Something to Me, Cu-cu-rru-cu-cu Paloma, I Got Plenty o' Nothing and Adios.
Like a Woman is so personal.
It's impossible not getting in dancing mood when listening to the first accords of Corazón the Melón.
Her voice makes me thrill when she sings "...I whispered be true to me and he sighed si si..." (Little Spanish Town). Orchestration and voice lead you to a magic moment.
Yes, as you can see, I don't like Bali Ha'I (any of its versions). Maybe because of South Pacific 1958 Film Soundtrack version that I hate body and soul.
