New Bernie Torme Album - what do you think?


I have the new Bernie Torme album (available on iTunes with 11 songs). Anybody else?

I am not sure what to think yet. It has some great guitar work, and I mean work, but I'm not sure I like the singer and some of the songs are maybe too simple for my Purple ears.

Audio quality is also low.

Still, I'm coming back. I think the later songs are more interesting than the first ones and I might have switched to something else too early in my earlier sessions.

Haven't heard it. Who is the singer? If it's Torme himself, well when I saw him singing live he wasn't exactly great... emoticon

If it's GMT, then it's Torme singing.

I think this is it.
Link to Amazon

I don't have the real data since my fiancee got it from itunes for me and I can't access itunes from Linux.

Looks like he's singing.
