Swingin on the Moon / Comin Home Baby [Import]
- (Bonus Tracks, Remastered)
- Artist: Torme Mel
- Format: CD
- Release Date:11/26/2013
Digitally remastered two-fer containing a pair of albums plus two bonus tracks. The first is the long unavailable 1960 thematic LP Swingin' on the Moon. Arranged by Russell Garcia, it compiles a dozen moon-related songs. This is followed by the 1962 album Comin' Home Baby!, on which the singer is backed by a swing group conducted by Shorty Rogers. It features such stars as Rogers himself on flugelhorn, and saxophonists Bud Shank and Bob Cooper, and includes vocal versions of famous songs composed by jazzmen usually played as instrumentals. While some of this music has appeared before in Mono and with inferior sound, this CD presents both albums in stereo and newly and carefully remastered to offer the best possible sound quality. In addition, we have included two extra songs which complete the Comin' Home Baby! Sessions but were not included on the original LP. Includes 16-page booklet.
