Overview

Celebrating 13 years of performances at New York's renowned Cafe Carlyle, vocalist Steve Tyrell delivers 2018's A Song for You. As with many of his past albums, A Song for You showcases the soulful crooner in a set of some of his most beloved pop favorites. Notably, the album also features some of the final work of longtime Tyrell collaborator Paul Buckmaster, the Grammy Award-winning arranger who passed away in 2017. Along with the Leon Russell-penned title track, included here are such nuggets as Van Morrison's "Someone Like You," the Otis Redding favorite "Try a Little Tenderness, and the country music standard "Always on My Mind." Elsewhere, he puts his distinctive mark on songs by Jackie Wilson, as well as composing teams like Victor Young and Edward Heyman, Harold Arlen and Johnny Mercer, and others. Bridging the gap between time-honored Great American Songbook standards like the 1930 staple "Them There Eyes" and more contemporary classics like the Joe Cocker ballad "You Are So Beautiful," Tyrell nestles into the songs, making each of them his own. ~ Matt Collar
