Torme by Mel Torme
Released: Jun 1958
Label: Verve Reissues
On this sometimes up-tempo ballad set, Torme and Marty Paich expand on their signature West Coast sound, changing pace and backing with each track. The lugubrious, once-banned "Gloomy Sunday" is the highlight and features a stunning soloing duet from Bud Shank and Jack Sheldon that mirrors the tortured relationship between the suicidal narrator and his dead lover.
