They Say All Music Guide

This was a very logical matchup that came out as well on record as it looked on paper. Valve trombonist/arranger Rob McConnell has long led one of the top mainstream jazz big bands, while Mel Tormé blossomed into one of the truly great jazz singers in the 1980s. McConnell’s charts suited Tormé perfectly, and the result is this consistently enjoyable and swinging album. The singer is quite enthusiastic and in top form on “Just Friends,” a touching “September Song,” “Don’t ‘Cha Go ‘Way Mad,” “A House Is Not a Home,” “The Song Is You,” a whimsical “Cow Cow Boogie,” a “Stars” medley, and an exciting six-song Duke Ellington medley. Highly recommended. – Scott Yanow
