An Essential Jazz Vocal Disc For Rainy Days and Nights
T. S. Lord | VT, United States | 02/26/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Long the subject of caricature ("Night Court" on TV, "Mountain Dew" ads) and underappreciated as a song writer ("The Christmas Song"), Mel Torme shows the breadth and depth of his lush style on "Jazz Round Midnight." I bought this CD after listening to a performance by Mel on NPR one Sunday morning in the mid nineties. I browsed through the bins at my local record store, and spied this CD in a very thin Torme section. When I got it home and played the disc while cooking dinner, I was stunned. Long a Sinatra/Nat King Cole fan, I had assumed Mel was a novelty act until the NPR piece introduced me to his music and then "Jazz Round Midnight" proved his range and silky-smooth talent. This is perfect "rainy day" jazz, compatible with the most romantic candlelit meal. Listen to Mel plaintively ask "How Did She Look?", a mellow masterpiece; or go driving down country roads on "Moonlight in Vermont"; and I challenge anyone to find a more assured version of "Body and Soul." Face it, Mel was The Man, and deserves to be on the same shelf as Frank, Nat, Ella, and Tony. "Jazz Round Midnight" is perfect anytime of day or night."
Classic Slow Jazz With Mel Tormé
Clinton Desveaux | 07/21/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This was the album where Tormé made "Blue Moon" a real and pure classic to listen and enjoy, the new opening is fantastic.
"Hello Young Lovers" has some of the best subtle jazz brass one will ever here, same goes with "Born to Be Blue". The vocals are solid on every track. The best track though besides Blue Moon must be "Blue and Sentimental" which mixes the hard with soft and the loud with quiet. A great jazz album sung by most likely the greatest singer to ever sing.
