Gene Norman Presents/ GNP-Crescendo Album Discography, Part 1: GNP Vol. 1 to GNP/GNPS-99 (1954-1964). By Dave Edwards, Patrice Eyries, and Mike Callahan Last update: August 24, 2007.

At that time, the logo also changed, from the multicolor circles to a rectangular logo in block letters. We would appreciate any additions or corrections to this discography.

A showcase for Mel Tormé at his best, recorded live in front of an audience, the album solidified the young singer's standing in the jazz world. Released in 1957, this session was recorded at the Crescendo in Los Angeles, arranged by Tormé's longtime collaborator, pianist/arranger Marty Paich. These familiar standards are taken to another level on this inspired concert album that sees Tormé backed by a small combo. 96 kHz, 24-bit PCM – Bethlehem Records Studio Masters.

The Crescendo was a West Hollywood jazz venue located at 8572 Sunset Boulevard. It opened in 1954, along with the Interlude upstairs, and ran until 1964. The Crescento was owned and operated by Gene Norman (né Eugene Abraham Nabatoff; 1922–2015) of GNP Crescendo Records who had purchased the property in 1954 from singer Billy Eckstine who had run the venue as the Chanticlair. The Chaticlair, Crescendo, and Interlude welcomed integrated audiences
