Album Notes and Credits

Notes & Personnel Info
Muze PNote Mel Torm?, 67 at the time of this recording, proves to still be very much in his musical prime. His range remains impressive, his creative abilities have grown through the years and his breath control is remarkable; as proof Torm? holds some very long notes at the conclusion of some of the ballads. This live set finds Torm? backed by what he dubbed "the Great American Songbook Orchestra," his usual trio plus a dozen horns. The band gets "Ya Gotta Try" as an instrumental and Torm? sits in on drums on "Rockin' in Rhythm" but otherwise the orchestra sticks to its anonymous role in the background. The singer wrote ten of the 15 arrangements and programmed plenty of variety in moods and tempos for his voice including a seven-song Duke Ellington mini-set. His masterful interpretation of "Stardust" is a highpoint. Recommended. ~ Scott Yanow

Professional Reviews

Stereo Review (2/94, p.146)
- Performance: Compelling / Recording: Fine Remote - "...Torme's velvety voice is as compelling as ever, and his timing is perfect; he has the swing and improvisational skill of a fine jazz instrumentalist, and his love for the material he sings is made abundantly clear with every phrase...."
