Info for The Velvet Fog (Remastered)
There is only one Mel Tormé, yet there are several brilliant talents. He could have made it as a drummer, pianist, arranger, actor, or author. In fact, he excels in each of these secondary roles while claiming the title of best of the jazz singers.
In this historic recording made December 1958 especially for the World Broadcasting Systems at the famous Radio Recorders studios in Hollywood, California Mel sings every song with great feeling and beauty of vocal tone. The selection of tunes is impeccable and he never sounded better.
Who could have predicted when Mel Tormé made his singing debut at the age of nine with the Coon Sanders Orchestra that he would someday become a well-known collector of antique cars. And how does he support his expensive hobby? Do you remember that he sang Blue Moon as no one else? Well, he followed up that hit by performing the same miracle on many other songs. After shedding the “velvet fog” image, he continued to improve and grow as an artist. Somewhere along the way, he broke away from a pack of fine vocalists, and like the thoroughbred he is, continues to win in a crowded race. Unlike those antique cars, he seems ageless. Highly respected and outlasting most of his contemporaries, the mature Tormé has become a giant in the world of jazz and other good music. ...
