James Tormé in "Something Cool!"

James Tormé in
Multi award-winning vocalist James Tormé returns to Martinis Above Fourth with Something Cool! - a genius reinvention of the West Coast jazz era.

Blowing the dust off of legendary arrangements (that he has special access to), the second-generation jazz star (yes, he’s the son of Mel) tips his hat to the coolest West Coast jazz composers and singers, from Marty Paich, George Shearing, Art Blakey, Shorty Rogers and Miles Davis to Ella Fitzgerald, Anita O’Day, Chet Baker, Mel Tormé, Peggy Lee and more.

Blessed with sublime control over a voice that has been likened to ‘creamy dark chocolate’, Tormé uses the songs of Something Cool as a canvas, diving into rhythmic and melodic mashups with a freedom and complexity few on the planet could match, while sharing stories (some of them hilarious) and inside Hollywood folklore along the way.

Tormé charms with his self-effacing manner and the show’s sheer hipness is contagious. Don’t miss SOMETHING COOL! It’s a must-see!
