The great American “Crooners” were male singers of jazz standards backed by either a full orchestra, a big band or a piano. Originally it was an ironic term denoting a sentimental singing style made possible by the invention of microphones and amplifiers, which allowed the crooner to sing in a much softer,quieter, more intimate style. Their popularity peaked during the 1920’s to 1950’s with the advent ofradio and electric recording allowing crooners to be heard by and, in turn, sell millions of albums.
