50th Anniversary Commemoration Edition of the TORMÉ-PAICH legendary sessions. A milestone in the history of vocal jazz, with fully illustrated booklet (rare & unpublished photos). The definitive edition.

Fascinated by the sound of the 1953 Gerry Mulligan Ten-tette, Mel Tormé had
always felt that these same patterns, re-worked for the proper vocalist, could blend voice and instrument to the mutual satisfaction of both. In 1956, this idea became a reality. The task of selecting musicians who could produce this sound was given to the versatile pianist-arranger Marty Paich who, in fact, co-featured with Mel on these recordings.The voice of Mel, Marty Paichs arrangements and his Dek-tette all blend to produce an outstanding jazz-oriented sound and feeling. Although five decades have passed, these masterpieces remain universally acknowledged as a milestone in the history of vocal jazz.
