Smooth as Velvet captures two sessions Mel Tormé cut during the early stages of his career. The first was with a small group headed by Dave Barbour during 1946 and 1947, and the second took place in 1957 with the Marty Paich Dekette (plus strings) for the Tops label. Each session is very good Tormé, and each has its special listening delight. When he hooked up with Dave Barbour (who appears on five of these cuts), Tormé had been recording for four years, and he demonstrates his sympathy for and control over the ballad form

Mel Torme, the fluent pop-jazz singer who earned the nickname the Velvet Fog for his smooth, soft vocal timbre, died yesterday of complications from a stroke he suffered in 1996. He was 73 and lived in Beverly Hills, Calif. Mr. Torme was rushed early yesterday from his home to the University of California at Los Angeles Medical Center, said his publicist, Rob Wilcox

Mel Tormé is in excellent voice for this matchup with Rob McConnell's Boss Brass, but somehow there is not as much musical magic as one might expect. With the exception of "My Sweetie Went Away" and "On the Swing Shift," none of the songs are exactly little-known, there are more ballads and less swingers than is optimal, and although there are a few short solos, the Boss Brass sounds surprisingly anonymous in this setting.
