James Torme Headlines in LOVE FOR SALE Tonight
The Cabaret celebrates jazz history with the son of the legendary entertainer Mel Tormé tonight and tomorrow, May 15 & 16 at 8:00pm. James Tormé brings classic jazz to a new generation, infusing older classics with contemporary influences, and haunting newer songs with his timeless throwback renditions. Having grown up hanging out with jazz legends such as Ella Fitzgerald, Duke Ellington, Buddy Rich, and more, it is no surprise that his debut jazz album Love For Sale reached #2 on iTunes Jazz and #3 on Amazon Jazz. Come find out why Jazz FM says, "If you get a chance to see James Tormé you should beg, borrow, even steal a ticket."
With just a single visit to one of James' shows it's easy to see why the multi-award winning singer is quickly becoming one of the most talked about artists on the planet. James Tormé (who is the son of 3-time Grammy Award Winning jazz legend Mel Tormé) is taking the legacy he was born into even further and causing a serious buzz in the process. Often appearing with outfits like the BBC Concert Orchestra, Ronnie Scott's Orchestra and Les Paul Trio, the charismatic young star's debut album has topped both the iTunes and Amazon Jazz Charts. Tormé is "the best male jazz singer to come along in 20 years" according to long time Verve Records president, Chuck Mitchell, the man who first discovered him.
Tormé himself attributes as much of his ability as a performer to the "process of osmosis" as he does to his own show-business background. This is clear as soon as one hears his singing style, which draws from the "old school", but with modern styling that makes it very current in today's market. James Tormé is being praised from all corners of the globe by everyone from Billboard™ and CBS News, to BBC Radio 2 and Jamie Cullum. Tormé is now consistently appearing at the world's top venues as well as being featured as the centerpiece of prestigious jazz festivals across the globe.
