Overview

Steve Tyrell, whose appearances in the two Father Of The Bride movies, and whose albums A New Standard and Standard Time established him as a premier contemporary interpreter of the Great American Songbook, now turns his attention to one of the legendary composers in all of pop music: Burt Bacharach.

Steve has a personal stake in these classic songs. As a young man breaking into the record business in the 1960s, he became head of A&R and Promotion at Scepter Records, the history-making independent label that released the famous hits written by Bacharach and his lyricist partner Hal David, and recorded by the great Dionne Warwick. Tyrell was present at the creation of standards like "Walk On By," "Alfie," "I Say A Little Prayer," and many others. Moreover, he produced B.J. Thomas' Oscar-winning recording of Bacharach-David's "Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head."

One can only categorize Tyrell's performances on Back To Bacharach as definitive. His supporting cast includes the top session players on two coasts, as well as guest collaborators Herb Alpert, Patti Austin, Dionne Warwick, James Taylor, Rod Stewart, and Martina McBride. Steve's own singular vocal style, drenched in the Texas tones of his sophisticated R&B approach, is perfectly suited to these great hits. He sings the songs exactly the way everyone wants to hear them. To top it all off, maestro Bacharach himself appears on three tracks as a performer and two as co-producer. From the Label

I recently had the pleasure of seeing Steve Tyrell perform here in Los Angeles. When he launched into the Burt Bacharach song set, I was smitten. That's music of my teenage life and boy it brought back some great memories. I went out and bought two copies of this c.d.--one for me and one for my mom.
