Description

    Crooner is an American epithet given to a male singer of 1920's to the early 1960's pop standards, mostly from the Great American Songbook, The singer is normally backed by a full orchestra or big band. Crooning is not so much a style of music as it is a technique in which to sing. Among the first crooners were Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra, Al Bowlly & Dean Martin who also incorporated other popular styles into their music, such as Blues and Dixieland. Crooners have remained popular among fans of traditional pop music, with contemporary performers such as Michael Buble, Harry Connick Jr, & Robbie Williams keep the form alive. While both male and female singers can sing in this style, the term is rarely used to describe a female singer. This compilation features The Best & The Greatest Crooners including, Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Perry Como, Al Bowlly, Mel Torme & Nat King Cole.
