Torchy! is a vocal jazz music album recording by CARMEN MCRAE released in 1955 on CD, LP/Vinyl and/or cassette. Filed under Vocal Jazz By CARMEN MCRAE.

Carmen McRae comes into her own on the aptly titled Torchy, a lush, potently atmospheric collection of romantic ballads rendered for maximum impact. Although Jack Pleis and Ralph Burns' full, rich arrangements firmly establish the record's plaintive urgency, the sheer intensity of McRae's vocals render orchestration virtually moot. Few singers have equaled her conviction or her fierce intelligence, and her interpretations of songs like "But Beautiful," "My Future Just Passed," and "We'll Be Together Again" pack a devastating emotional punch

Last Night When We Were Young, 02:37. But Beautiful, 02:56. If You'd Stay the Way I Dream, 02:45. Good Morning, Heartache, 03:18.

It was McRae's debut album and was released on the Bethlehem label. The album was reissued in 2000 with six additional tracks, alternate takes of songs from the original album.
