5.0 out of 5 stars Another great cd 6 Jan 2009

Another great value 2in1 cd, from the late great Mel Torme. This cd is worth the money just for the track Sunday in New York, great song, great singer. Well worth spending some pennies on this one.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Period Piece 5 Jan 2007
By Nikica Gilic - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Yes, this interesting reissue of two albums on one CD is logical since both albums share certain features, although I prefer the first album...

You can say for both albums something like this:

This is a typical period piece, an attempt to combine true jazz with commercial arrangements, with an additional insult to the injury, a rock 'n' roll number or two... Well, if you think Mel sounds awkward singing rock, you should hear Ella Fitzgerald...
The giveaway of commercial ambitions: this reissue doesn't even bother to name the musicians, although at some numbers (particularly on first album) some of the horns did get a lick or two...

But, seriously, this CD, uneven as it is, still contains some fine jazz,
Mel even gets to scat a bit so, all in all, it is a pleasurable listening, particularly if you're fun of Mel's unique timbre and imaginative playing with time...

However, the second album (one on the New York theme) particularly weighs this double reissue down. Although the first album starts with some silly back-vocals and ends with a rock number, the main problem of this CD are strings and other symptoms of generally over-organized arrangements on second album...

Even "Lullaby of Birdland" sounds dull and boring, although it is the type of song ideal for the singer's tallents... When the arrangements on the New York part of this CD "swing", it is a bit too close to the Sinatra type of swing, when the arrangements on "Comin' Home Baby" album lean towards hard bop and funk, Mel is too suave, cool and sophisticated to surrender and go the way the arrangers intended...

I have to be honest, I like this CD much more than it deserves, so these 3 stars are rational, not emotional grading...
Actually, being acquainted with some much better albums of this great American singer (particularly those where Mel had the creative control), I'm not at all surprised the experience of recording for Atlantic chased him away from the music business for a while...

Jazz critics and fans sometimes badmouth Norman Granz for being commercially minded, but I think that sort of criticism should be reserved for the Ertegun concept of milking pop music out of great jazz artists...
