A True American Legend – The “Velvet Fog” Mel Torme

I think only Ella Fitzgerald could out ‘scat’ Mel Torme. If Mel Torme were alive today, he would have been 88. We remembered his music during today’s show.

In show business from age four, Torme studied drums and songwriting while acting in radio soaps. His first song, “Lament to Love”, was recorded by Harry James in 1941. Torme led his own vocal group, the Mel-Tones, then recorded a string of hits through the 1950s. He wrote biographies of Judy Garland and Buddy Rich, and an autobiography. He died in 1999.
