4 STARS ALL MUSIC GUIDE

 
This edition presents two of only three albums ever recorded by celebrated actor Anthony Perkins in their entirety: his debut release Tony Perkins (1957) and On a Rainy Afternoon (1958). Best remembered for his role as Norman Bates in Alfred Hitchcock’s legendary 1960-horror film Psycho (and its three sequels), Perkins decided to briefly try his luck as a jazz vocalist on three outstandings LPs during 1957-1958. A musical talent deserving of a lengthy discography, Perkins would never record another album again, instead choosing to dedicate himself exclusively to his acting career. Perkin’s vocal timbre, versatility and ability to evoke a mood bear a striking resemblance to Chet Baker.
