On this reissue CD, pianist/arranger Marty Paich heads a septet that consists of trumpeters Jack Sheldon and Don Fagerquist, valve trombonists Stu Williamson and Bob Enevoldsen, and a quiet rhythm section with bassist Buddy Clark and drummer Mel Lewis. While some swing standards are taken as stomps (including "Blue Lou" and "Jumpin' at the Woodside"), a pair of Dixieland warhorses ("Dinah" and "Ida") are surprisingly recast as dreamy and introspective ballads. In addition, there are a couple other familiar pieces, plus an original apiece by Paich ("Iris of the IRA") and Bill Holman. The cool-toned music holds one's interest and is one of many fine Marty Paich recordings from the 1950s.

After flirting with bobby-soxer idolatry early in his career, Mel Tormé teamed up with arranger Marty Paich to explore the full range of his artistic potential. Together they conceived the idea of a 10-piece instrumental backing ensemble they dubbed the "Dek-tette". On this reissue of 1956's Bethlehem LP, Tormé is found singing with one of those Dek-tettes. Our featured track is the song that would become a Tormé trademark, "Lulu's Back in Town".

Pianist and arranger Marty Paich gets the credit on the cover, but this 1955 album is indeed a true collaboration between Paich and his sidemen: the great trombonist Herbie Harper, Larry Bunker on vibes, Curtis Counce on bass, Jack Costanzo on bongos, Frankie Capp on drums and vocalist Mickey Lynne who sings on one track. This recording was intended to be the first in a series of albums named after the Hollywood jazz club Jazz City.

50th Anniversary Commemoration Edition of the TORMÉ-PAICH legendary sessions. A milestone in the history of vocal jazz, with fully illustrated booklet (rare & unpublished photos). The definitive edition. Fascinated by the sound of the 1953 Gerry Mulligan Ten-tette, Mel Tormé had always felt that these same patterns, re-worked for the proper vocalist, could blend voice and instrument to the mutual satisfaction of both. In 1956, this idea became a reality. The task of selecting musicians who could produce this sound was given to the versatile pianist-arranger Marty Paich who, in fact, co-featured with Mel on these recordings.

Mel Tormé and arranger Marty Paich (leading his ten-piece "Dek-tette") recorded several classic albums in the late '50s. On Reunion earlier in 1988 they had an enjoyable collaboration and this live set was a follow-up. In general these in-concert performances are livelier with Tormé sounding quite exuberant at times. A joyful outing. ~ Scott Yanow, All Music Guide
