"James Tormé is definitely his father's son-smooth and cool."

New York Post

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.

Having grown up spending time with a myriad of jazz legends (Bing Crosby, Peggy Lee, Duke Ellington, George Shearing, Buddy Rich & more), one begins to understand why jazz comes naturally to Tormé. As he explains it himself “There's no question, I absorbed a lot from my dad, and his peers.” This is clear as soon as one hears his singing style, which draws from the 'old school', but with modern styling that makes him still sound current.
