The Jazz Singers
On James Tormé's The Jazz Singers from Tuesdays at 6pm, James hosts a fascinating journey through jazz's vocal giants from Bessie Smith to Harry Connick Jr. and everyone in between. He offers his unique perspectives on both their popularity and their importance.
James Tormé was born into a professional show business family with household names from both sides of the Atlantic. As the son of legendary jazz singer Mel Tormé and British actress Janette Scott (and grandson of Dame Thora Hird), he grew up in an environment where people like Peggy Lee and Miles Davis were 'aunts and uncles'. Tormé brings an 'inside the biz' perspective, as well as his own unique charm to his programmes.
