Steve March-Torme’s I Remember Christmastime!
For those unaware, Steve March-Torme, the son of legendary singer-songwriter Mel Torme and the stepson of well-known actor/comedian Hal March, is a talented entertainer in his own right.
Since the late 1970s, he has been a successful singer, entertainer, recording artist, TV & radio host and has toured extensively worldwide to an ever-growing fan base.
Steve has now written a brand new, original Christmas song entitled I Remember Christmastime, a quite beautiful, nostalgic, sentimental salute to fond remembrances of the Christmas season.
Furthermore, Steve’s new Christmas song is released 76 years after Mel Torme co-wrote the iconic The Christmas Song (commonly subtitled as Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire), which became a huge holiday hit for Nat King Cole in 1946 and again in 1961.
The original 1946 recording was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 1974. The song is the most performed Christmas song ever.
I Remember Christmastime has already been added to the holiday playlists of over 25 radio stations and has been receiving an enthusiastic response when performed during his current December holiday tour.
He has performed, recorded, and worked with many notable artists over the years, including Liza Minnelli (his childhood friend), and has recorded and released nine albums since 1979. He’s also hosted and/or performed on television variety shows, game shows (The $100,000 Name That Tune) and an MTV interview show entitled Video 22.
March-Torme has headlined venues from the Detroit Jazz Festival to the McCallum Performing Arts Center in Palm Desert, CA, to the Smith Center in Las Vegas, and performed worldwide from London to Japan, Australia to Brazil and Canada.
Reviewers praise his “strong and true vocal chops” (PEOPLE Magazine), say his “voice is seductive and effortless” (L.A. Times), and that he’s “more than a jazz singer—he’s a consummate entertainer and an exceptionally versatile artist” (Music Connection Magazine).
He’s adept at performing in a variety of musical genres, both live and in the studio, including jazz, pop, big band and with symphony orchestras. He performed on occasion with his father, Mel, and sometimes performs tribute shows dedicated to Mel’s music.
In 2006, his Tormé Sings Tormé, a four-sided, double disc DVD and CD on AIX Records, won Best Vocal Dual Disc at the EMX DVD Awards show in Los Angeles.
