Mel Tormé's first recording for Atlantic is his best, a devastating swing set recorded at the Red Hill in Pennsauken, New Jersey. It's clear from just a few bars that the ever-ebullient scatter/singer is in his element here, swinging live at an intimate jazz club before a knowing audience; he treats onlookers to glorious versions of his live standards "Mountain Greenery" and "It's Delovely," extending the latter by several verses with updated, modern lyrics.

In 1998, Rhino did Mel Tormé fans a favor by packaging onto CD (for the first time) the two live dates Tormé recorded for Atlantic, 1962's Mel Tormé at the Red Hill and 1974's Live at the Maisonette. Since he thrived in a concert setting, these two LPs - the first with a trio, the second with a full orchestra - are great selections for those anxious to investigate beyond masterpieces like Sings Fred Astaire and Swings Shubert Alley
