Not The Same 'ol Same 'ol Sunday - An Evening At Charlie's

Mel Torme & George Shearing
An Evening At Charlie's
Don't be afraid of the Lounge. It won't hurt a bit.
It was a match made in heaven. In the early '80s, velvet-toned jazz vocal master, Mel Torme, teamed up with elegantly swinging jazz pianist, George Shearing, for a recording collaboration that would result in six already-classic Concord Jazz recordings over the course of eight years. Starting with the Grammy Award-winning An Evening with George Shearing & Mel Torme in 1982 and culminating with the Grammy Award-nominated Mel & George 'Do' World War II in 1990 - and boasting Grammy Award-nominations for every recording in between! - this perfect match of musical wits brimmed with virtuosity, humor, refined taste and, of course, swing, on each and every recording.
