The iconic Mel Torme, one of jazz’s most phenomenal vocalists, delivered a masterpiece with his 1960 recording, Mel Torme Swings Shubert Alley. One of his several collaborations with exquisite pianist/arranger Marty Paich, Torme swung hard with this loud and fast collection of Broadway standards. With his exuberant and husky vocals, Torme tackles classics like “Too Close For Comfort,” “Too Darn Hot” and “Old Devil Moon.” The album finds Torme in top form and is a must own for any audiophile who loves vocal jazz at its finest.

Singer Mel Tormé and pianist George Shearing make a perfect team, bringing out the best in each other. With the assistance of bassist John Leitham and drummer Donny Osborne, the swinging, witty duo performs a variety of standards, including Noël Coward's "Someday I'll Find You", "The Way You Look Tonight", and "Anyone Can Whistle", and a couple of medleys highlighted by a humorous six-song "New York, New York Medley". All of the Tormé/Shearing collaborations are quite enjoyable and highly recommended as some of their best work of the 1980s.

After flirting with bobby-soxer idolatry early in his career, Mel Tormé teamed up with arranger Marty Paich to explore the full range of his artistic potential. Together they conceived the idea of a 10-piece instrumental backing ensemble they dubbed the "Dek-tette". On this reissue of 1956's Bethlehem LP, Tormé is found singing with one of those Dek-tettes. Our featured track is the song that would become a Tormé trademark, "Lulu's Back in Town".

Features 24 bit remastering and comes with a mini-description. The 1960's represented a very interesting time for musicians of all genres; three particular reasons began a trend for future generations of musical artists. The Beach Boys, The Beatles, and The Rolling Stones were the 3 reasons which permanently altered the musical landscape and basically made it impossible for stars of the past to remain economically viable in the present. The only 2 exceptions to the rule of course were Mel Tormé and Frank Sinatra.

Mel Tormé's first recording for Atlantic is his best, a devastating swing set recorded at the Red Hill in Pennsauken, New Jersey. It's clear from just a few bars that the ever-ebullient scatter/singer is in his element here, swinging live at an intimate jazz club before a knowing audience; he treats onlookers to glorious versions of his live standards "Mountain Greenery" and "It's Delovely," extending the latter by several verses with updated, modern lyrics. Always conscious of featuring his musicians too, Tormé allows room for solos from pianist Jimmy Wisner, and even grabs the piano himself for three songs (including both of the above). One caveat: taking nothing away from the original performance, his dynamic vocal range occasionally results in light distortion.
