Mel and George doing their usual act, so if you've got any of the other M&G CDs, you'll know what to expect. That isn't to say that the music is anything less than superb,however. The Ellington medley is particularly good, and the cicadas in the background of this live outdoor recording at the Paul Masson Winery lend the whole set a warm and relaxed atmosphere.

Two consummate musicians at work. George's version of Lilli Marlene is sublime. All student pianists should be made to listen to his version of "I Know Why" as an example of how a ballad should be played.
Their arrangement of "We Mustn't Say Goodbye" is just beautiful.

A nostalgic mix of fun and romance 9 Jun. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Torme and Shearing team up to present the best of the songs of the World War II era. They emphasize romantic ballads, with some lighter songs (e.g. "This is the Army") added for fun. This listener, born nine years after the war ended, wanted to go and volunteer at the nearest Stage Door Canteen after hearing this recording for the first time. It's that real, that moving, that good.

Master Vocal, Master Piano Command - What Else to Say 10 July 2000
By Carlos from Rio - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
... OK, the repertoire is II War songs, a brilliant idea possibly credited to Tormé. This is a live recording with a beautiful opening by George Shearing playing "Lili Marlene" in a sensitive way that I presume must have shocked the audience due to their complete silence and reverence and to Shearing's tenderness. Don't lose the chance to listen to it.

Format: Audio CD
I found this disk brilliant and was delighted when i was able to obtain it through amazon. i first heard it on the Russell DAVIES SHOW on BBC radio two and was amazed at how these two great tunesmiths work so well together. Great melodies too from a sad time in our history.

Music at its finest..... 10 April 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
One of the great pairings in music is Mel Torme and his dear friend, George Shearing. I was in the audience at this concert at the Paul Masson Mountain winery in Saratoga, CA in 1990 and remember hearing the crickets gently chirping in the background on this perfect starry night (which can be heard on the first track!)and was thrilled to hear the announcement that the concert was being recorded for release on CD. George Shearing has as velvet a touch on the piano as Mel Torme has with his voice. Shearing's solo piano tracks are my favorites and the album alone is worth these. Adding Torme with his excellent phrasing and perfect pitch is an unbeatable combination. It's a romantic and nostalgic set. Love it!

Mel and George 'Do' It Right 12 Jan. 2008
By Lynne Jenkins - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Great music! Particularly if you are a fan of Mel Torme or George Shearing or World War II music.
Not a ' must' but a joy to have and hold.
