RIDGEFIELD — Growing up in a household influenced more by comedy than music, Steve March-Tormé says that he surprises people when he confides that in his youth, he spent a lot more time with Buddy Hackett than Buddy Rich.
According to biographer Scott Yanow, March-Tormé actually avoided singing jazz for a long time so he could escape the huge shadow of his father. He actually did not grow up with his father, the entertainer Mel (“The Velvet Frog) Tormé, since his parents were divorced when he was two.
