Mel Torme – My Kind of Music

Verve V-8440 (USA), released in 1962

The great singer Mel Torme recorded this album of standards in the U.K. in 1961. Relying on the outstanding arranging talents of Geoff Love, Tony Osborne and Wally Stott, he lends fresh interpretations to five of his own compositions: ""A Stranger In Town", "Born To Be Blue", "County Fair", "Welcome To The Club", and evergreen "The Christmas Song". Almost all of the remaining songs come from the prolific pens of songwriters Howard Dietz and Arthur Schwartz. These include "You And The Night And The Music", "I Guess I'll Have To Change My Plan", "Dancing In The Dark", "By Myself" and "Alone Together", tunes with rich harmonies which have been covered by jazz musicians many times over the years.
