Overview

After taking a host of potshots at the Big Apple on his 1949 Left Coast opus California Suite, Mel Tormé repents via Sunday in New York and Other Songs About New York, a buoyant, genuinely affectionate Gotham tribute that effortlessly captures the city's sophistication and energy. While entries like "Lullaby of Broadway" and "Forty Second Street" pay homage to the theatrical tradition, Tormé largely favors songs that document the everyday poetry of New York life, evoking with jazzy aplomb the rhythms of a people and place in perpetual motion.
