Steve March, The Velvet Fog's little mist-er, gave the pop-rock lane a try, but eventually found a career learning and then leaning into Dad's musical forte.
Perhaps most importantly, how would Judge Harry T. Stone feel about the son of Mel?
Okay, not really important at all. But I can't help it. I can't think of Mel Torme without also thinking about Night Court.
Great piece! First things first, I’ve always loved “Born to be Blue”, so thanks for uncovering Steve’s (the other Steve) cover, which I didn’t know. Love the lush production and bluesy vibe (predictably 😅).
Now, as for Steve -- Lucky Steve, let’s call him -- he was a complete unknown to me, so thanks once again for feeding my ears! The first few minutes of the Lucky “megamix” you shared at the end reminded me ever so slightly of Elton John. I could then appreciate the Beatles influence. There’s definitely something from this side of the pond!
Great story about Steve and the era and people of his youth.
