I am honored that Mel Tormé and Johnny Mathis recorded some songs of mine, ever so beautifully. I was so amazed by Mel’s scat tour de force that I had to make it my nod to the great Tormé. To my knowledge, this piece had only been performed with the late great jazz pianist, George Shearing, but never fully orchestrated. Once again, Citrus alum David Catalan’s arrangement and Citrus College Blue Note Orchestra did a masterful job of knocking this one out of the park!
