  4. All Torme fans will be familiar with the classic 60's lp on Verve "Mel Torme Swings Shubert Alley With Mrty Paich's Orch."(where Torme & Paich reshaped Lulu's Back In Town). Well this cd collaboration with Rob McConnell's Boss Brass Big Band, may possibly eclispe that classic verve set, for one reason /5(10).
  5. The CD of Rob McConnell and the Boss Brass -- All in Good Time -- is an excellent example of modern big band writing and playing. I especially enjoy "Close Enough For Love" with Guido Basso on flugelhorn. The writing is exceptional and the band plays each arrangement with a virtuoso performance.4/5(6).
  6. An Evening with Mel Tormé is a live album by Mel Tormé.This was Tormé's final recording before a stroke ended his career.. Track listing. Just One of Those Things"/"On Green Dolphin Street" (Cole Porter)/(Bronislaw Kaper, Ned Washington) – "You Make Me Feel So Young" (Mack Gordon, Josef Myrow) – "A Nightingale Sang in Berkeley Square" (Eric Maschwitz, Manning Sherwin.
  7. Unlike most singers who get old and attempt to push their voices to places where the vocal chords were never to visit; Tormé alters the music and songs to fit the voice. The soft yet solid "Velvet Fog" just wraps around you on this album and makes you smile. Toronto Canada's Boss Brass of Rob McConnell packs the punch.
  8. The first Mel and the Boss Brass album from the early 80s is such fun and so full of surprises that it wasn't going to be easy to match it. This is a little smoother, warmer, lovely to listen to but is a bit like going back on holiday to a place you loved the first time/5(14).
