Mel Torme - radio transcriptions

These recordings could not sound better on this stifling summer evening.
These sides are from radio transcriptions recorded in the late 40's, the formative years in Torme's career. These are nothing more than a fascinating bit of nostalgia.

This no additional info provided with the lp, which was reissued in 1978 on Glendale records.

I keep threatening to post some vocal lps and hopefully I can get some more up here eventually.

Your blog is one of the best i've seen so far. The content you share is so rich...it's almost unvaluable.
Whenever i need not only great but jaw-dropping music (might not be the best term), i come here.
Thank you very much for sharing all you've been sharing.
