WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

This big band orchestra and tribute -- Remembering Mel: A Big Band Musical Tribute to Mel Torme, featuring Warren Schein -- pays fitting homage to one of the most enduring singers of all time. It includes a litany of some of Mel's favorite songs such as "Lulu's Back In Town," "Guess I'll Hang My Tears Out To Dry," "Come Rain Or Come Shine," "Lullaby Of Birdland" to name but a few. Mel Torme, or "The Velvet Fog" as his fans fondly called him demonstrated his tremendous range-from jazz, to Big Band to blues to traditional pop standards throughout his career spanning over six decades. He also wrote many songs including "The Christmas Song" recorded by Nat King Cole. Warren Schein has been nicknamed "The Velvet Mist" as his voice and style emulates Mel's perfectly. Warren is a Queensborough alumni.
