By Pete Johnson VINE VOICE on 1 May 2013
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Mel Torme himself would have admitted that he was not the best looking crooner to ever tread a stage. Compared to today's stubble-faced, vest-wearing, tattooed superstars in their skinny jeans, he looked like someone's older brother. Yet in 1962, sharp-suited, clean cut, fingers clicking,Torme was not only a teen heart-throb, he was undeniably cool.

This compilation trades on the recent TV use of the title track in an advertisement. At this price, the CD is worth it for this track alone. Timeless, jazzy, and feeling relevant over 50 years later, 'Comin Home baby' is just irresistible. The other tracks are a random collection of standards and jazz numbers, though the inclusion of 'Right Now', another hit in the UK, is very welcome. Even on the standards, Torme lets his credentials shine, with scat solos, and that distinctive smooth and easy flow of his voice.
Think Michael Buble but cool, then add much cooler. It is a must-have, at the price of a 'designer' coffee.
