Info for Mel Torme with the Meltones and Artie Shaw (Remastered)
Acknowledged as one the greatest jazz vocalists of all time, Mel Tormé was admirably nick-named "The Velvet Fog" for his ultra smooth vocal stylings. A gifted composer as well, Torme penned one of the most famous songs of all time; the perennial "Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting On An Open Fire)." In 1944 he formed the vocal quintet "Mel Tormé and His Mel-Tones," who were among the first jazz-influenced vocal groups which became the model for The Four Freshman and The Manhattan Transfer. Recorded with Artie Shaw's group in 1946, this classic recording captures Mel and his early group at their vocal best. All selections newly remastered.
Two-time Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter Mel TormE (1925-99) published more than 250 songs in his lifetime, mostly in collaboration with cowriter and friend Robert Wells (1922-98). Together at the piano and within forty-five minutes, they wrote the music and lyrics to one of the most beloved Christmas songs ever, appropriately titled "The Christmas Song."
