Torme at his best...but one note of warning! 5 Feb. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I had taped the original LP off a library copy years and years ago and played it until the tape broke. When compact discs came out, I was disappointed that this terrific album was not among the first re-released on CD. I waited and waited for the CD version...and one day ...there it was! Why it took so long, I don't know. But it really is a mature Torme at his best, in fine voice with an excellent selection of numbers, an enthusiastic audience, and joined in song by some interesting friends---Gerry Mulligan, Cy Coleman, Jonathan Schwartz, Janis Ian. The little-known duet with Janis Ian was nominated for a Grammy. But here's a warning: there are several selections (actually one song and one medley) that are on the original LP---AND ARE LISTED ON THE CD, too---but are actually NOT on the CD: a medley with Gerry Mulligan ("Line for Lyons"/"Venus De Milo"/"Walking Shoes") and "Chase Me Charlie." Too bad---these are wonderful cuts (especially the medley) and it's a shame they left them off the CD. I called the record company to complain, but to no avail. In any case, the rest of the CD is great, and it's a must for Torme fans!

The Torme Album to Take to a Desert Island 28 Mar. 2001
By J. T. Moran - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
If you're a first time Torme purchaser, this is THE album to have. Torme is one of a handful of singers who truly got better as he grew older, beginning in the mid 1970s with his Live at the Maisonette LP right up until his unfortunate stroke in the late 1990s. This live club date demonstrates his great rapport with the audience, amazing vocal powers and his sheer musical genius. Nobody, save Ella, can scat like Torme, and there's plenty of it on this disc. The interplay between Mel and his pianist on "Pick Yourself Up" is dazzling. He is working WITH his fellow musician, not trying to upstage him. But just as importantly, he never lets his 'jazz singer' label get in the way of the lyrical intent of a great song. Mel's rendition of "A Cottage For Sale" didn't surpass Sinatra's, but clearly sits along side it. I have this album to thank for introducing me to the beautiful Gershwin ballad "Isn't It A Pity". Like one of the other reviewers, I too own the original two record vinyl version. Sorry to hear that the Gerry Mulligan medley was dumped! It was one of the great moments in the recording. But there are so many still contained within, I'd strongly encourage it's purchase.

Awesome Mel, Missing Some Songs 6 Oct. 2011
By James F. Sheehan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Mel Torme and Friends, Live at Marty's is my absolute favorite Mel Torme album, and I've got most of his releases in my collection. The sound on this CD-R is terrific, though you'll hear a few pops from the original vinyl. They're really not too distracting; the performance is just so top-notch. What's missing from the two-record set on this single CD is a three-song medley with Gerry Mulligan and another song from Mel, a sweet one called "Chase Me, Charlie."
I'm glad I got this album on CD, so I don't have to use the turntable, and I've grown tired of waiting for the real thing to come along.

So, Ya Wanna Know Jazz... 6 Jan. 2008
By R. K. Hart - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Here is a Great American Voice showcasing the finesse that a lifetime of practice and work can provide. Today's market consciousness may hold but a handful of progenitors--Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, B.B. King et al.--but Mel Torme holds a deserved place in the pantheon of groundbreaking male vocalists, jazz or otherwise. His inimitable style shines through well in this live recording of technical merit. "And Friends" give performances that only enhance the final product--which is a must have for the beginning and advanced jazz collector alike: Janice Ian, Gerry Mulligan, Cy Coleman, Jonathon Schwartz, Mike Renzi, Rufus Feid, Jay Leonhart, & Donny Osborn.

Without Mel Torme, you're missing the depth of jazz. And without this recording, you're missing some lush Velvet Fog.

Missing Tracks 5 Aug. 2003
By Harold H Proctor - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
As always Mel is fabulous...add his friends and it's even better. But I was under the influence when purchasing this CD that I was getting all the tracks that were on the vinyl of this same named album. It's a shame we fans have to go without the other great songs. My CD cover even lists more tracks that were on the CD itself. SO I feel like I was taken when I see 20 tracks on my cover but only have 18.
