    Melvin Howard Tormé was born in Chicago in 1925 into a family with Russian-Jewish ancestry. (The family’s original name was Torma, which a US immigration officer misspelled as Torme on his father’s entry to America: The name stuck). Young Mel was immersed in music from a young age – his mother played piano and his father sang, though not profession...

    Verve Records was founded in 1956 by jazz impresario Norman Granz, initially as a vehicle to showcase the talent of his protege, singer Ella Fitzgerald, and take her into the mainstream. Mel Tormé joined his friend at the label in 1958, hoping that they could record a duet together, though a collaboration between them failed to materialize. Nonethe...

    Though Mel Tormé’s caressing voice was suited to languid ballads, he could also deliver lively songs with a swing-easy swagger.

    The pianist and composer Duke Ellington was one of Mel Tormé’s idols and later became his friend. (Occasionally, Duke allowed Tormé to play drums on stage with his band). Tormé had covered Ellington tunes on some of his early albums but in 1962 offered a more substantial homage to the Washington DC bandleader with I Dig The Duke, I Dig The Count, a...
