A CLASSIC AND A REAL MUST HAVE!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sunday In New York & Other Songs About New York [International Release] (Audio CD)
I took a bit of a punt on this one. Having been a huge Sinatra, Bennett, Connick Jr fan I was in need of a new find and had heard very little of Mel Torme. Well...this has now one of my favourite CDs, thanks to a near perfect combination of smooth, swinging vocals, great tunes and fantastic arrangements. The title track is a great opener and I love the melody of, 'Brooklyn Bridge', but for me there are two songs on here that together justify buying this CD, 'New York, New York' (From the movie 'On The Town', a different song entirely from the one made famous by Sinatra in the 70's) and the closing track, 'My Time Of Day'. Both are just perfect renditions, and on listening transport you back to and immerse you in an New York from a past, musically rich era. I love it and suggest you simply sit back with a drink and enjoy it.
