Review

Review Text Perhaps it was a reaction to his own obvious talents as a super-crooner, or an unwillingness to be pigeonholed, but Mel Torme only twice recorded an all-ballad album in his prime. The first was IT'S A BLUE WORLD, a 1956 beauty available with two other seminal Torme Bethlehem albums as part of a box set on Rhino-Bethlehem. It wasn't until 1964 that Torme and the pop producer/arranger Robert Mersey pulled out all the romantic stops again and recorded THAT'S ALL, heralded on the album cover itself as "a lush, romantic album." These two pros do not disappoint as 12 well-chosen gems like Gershwin's infrequently heard "Isn't it a Pity" and "The Nearness of You" are unveiled in a state-of-the-art pop production that includes bossa nova rhythms, soft guitar and a carpet of strings. The occasionally baroque Torme is in superb voice here, no scatting or fancy footwork in sight. As a bonus, the excellently remastered CD reissue also includes 12 little-known Torme performances, originally released as singles during his short stint with Columbia Records in the mid '60s.
