Synopsis

Amazon.com
Sanitize Tom Waits's vocal cords, take some of the rasp out of Dr. John's, put some muscle into Bobby Caldwell's, combine them and you'll have an approximation of the quality of Steve Tyrell's voice. Like his popular 1999 debut, A New Standard, this is a meticulously recorded album featuring the great American songbook and some of the best jazz soloists alive, including trumpeter Clark Terry, harmonica player Toots Thielemans, and singer Jane Monheit, who plays Lucille Ball and Betty Carter against Tyrell's Red Skelton and Ray Charles on the classic duet "Baby It's Cold Outside." Tyrell complements each of his partners with the kind of empathy that makes them shine as bright as his irresistible voice. Plas Johnson's saxophone take on "That Old Feeling," for instance, is highly reminiscent of the symbiotic musical partnership that Lester Young created with Billie Holiday more than half a century ago. Also like his first record, it is the creative arrangements of guitarist Bob Mann and pianist Joe Sample that make this 16-song disc work so well. --Mark Ruffin

From rod stewart to steve tyrell

(5 out of 5 stars)

"I do not know Steve Tyrell until Amazon offered a free download of his song Alfie. I am an Asian who loves American standards and pop music. I am a fan of Rod Stewart since I was in college in 1970's. When Rod recorded American songbooks, I bought 2 songbook CDs. I was very dissapointed of the monotonous identical dancing beat the producer applied in almost all selections in the Rod Stewart CDs such that every song sounded alike. Surprisingly, it was reported that Rod Stewart songbook CDs are making money, maybe because of heavy promotion and Rod's name. Now, this Tyrell CD is many many times better than Rod Stewart CD in all aspects of musical arrangement including the depth of vocalization and phrasing. Of course, Rod is not really a jazzy vocalist. I am still Rod's fan in terms of his pop/rock CDs. But for American standard songbook, I recommend to all Rod Stewart fans to buy Tyrell CDs. No regrets whatsoever with Tyrell 5-star CDs."
