What a contrast! The Velvet Fog & The Boss Brass! But, it works! Rob McConnell's band isn't called the "Boss Brass" for nothin'! But ol' Mel gets down and smooth with 13 tracks of some great Cole Porter, Johnny Mercer, & Gershwin.

Pour a glass of your favorite recreational beverage, kick back, and enjoy, cousins!

It Grows On One

"This cd is one that gets better with age. Each time I hear it I like it more. The Kern & Hammerstein song, Nobody Else But Me, desrves to lead the disc. It's that great! I just wish a great singer would have done a Kern/Hammerstein Songbook. All the songs are fabulous even the dated Swing Shift. There are times when Mel's sessions with a band didn't work but this time it does. A REAL GEM! A gem that has songs that deserve to heard because they weren't overdone."
Its the Boss!

"Mel Torme's collaboration with Rob McConnell et al is terrific. I've listened to a great deal of Mel Torme' over the past 17 years (even had the opportunity to see him live in ' 87), and I personally love his 'older' voice the best. Songs like 'Love Walked In,' 'I Get A Kick Out Of You,' and 'Liza' showcase his talent. Rob McConnell's Boss Brass are really kickin' it too! Enjoy this one while you're hanging around the house."
