Talk about It Wasn't All Velvet:

Really not a conventional autobiography. Mr. Torme tells stories about the people and the times, as they came through his life.
Nothing very deep ... But very well written
Classy guy can write just wish he let me into his thoughts more ... Mostly a veneer of a book with the smattering of well known names mentioned
Does not take you into his life but travels with you as he goes from one important time to the next important time in his life
Very sad that entertainers such as Tormé are gone
Mel Torme was my favorite singer when I was in high school, and I even belonged to one of his fan clubs. I was
privileged to meet him a few times and attend one of his shows. He was so kind and respectable to his fans. I had
never read his biography, and was thrilled after all these years to find it on Amazon. Mel is an intelligent writer with
a flair for telling all the unhappy times as well as the great times. You will find it so fascinating to read of his early years,
traveling with the big bands as a teenager. He tells of his marriages with honesty, holding nothing back.
Not only was Mel a singer, but also an arranger,composer, and a drummer. Because of all his talents, you will meet
many famous stars through out this book.
Looking forward to reading it!
classic bpok. Gaave it as gift and this is a fabulous book
fun read
Well written auto biography by one of my favorite singers.
For the price, book's condition is excellent. Anything concerning Uncle Mel is welcome, a singular man not given to introspection.
