When I first heard Steve Tyrell, I kept wondering, where has this man been?? He truly is the voice you've been searching for. After receiving A New Standard as a gift, I was hooked. I played it and played it until a trip to Barnes & Noble in October of this year led me to my newfound obsession, Standard Time. Mr. Tyrell's second go-round lived up to its expectations. Each song better than the last, classics like ''Baby It's Cold Outside'' and ''Georgia on my Mind'' left me wanting me more. You just can't get enough of that voice...

I was at Barnes & Noble and heard it played overhead like background. But I found my foot keeping rhythm and my attention drawn to it. As I listened thought, ''Great piano.. great trumpet..wow, what a great band''. Then, ''Interesting, warm voice, jazz with a R&B twist.. who is this guy?''. Then I heard ''What a Little Moonlight Can Do'', and I was hooked. Got ''Standard Time'' without further hesitation. Steve Tyrell knows how to sing those great songs with the same assurance and fun as these artists in their later years when I think they were/are their best and least self-conscious: Mel Torme, Sarah Vaughn, Rosemary Clooney, Shirley Horn. His interpretations are fresh and kicky. He's got the grit of Billie Holiday and Diana Krall and loaded with character. The arrangements are perfect and fun. The band is all that you can hope for.

This artist always delivers a sound which is distinctively his and if one enjoys this mood, then one is happy and satisfied with the product. At times, his choice of material leaves me wanting something else or something more, but more than not, I enjoy the presentation. He always sounds as if he is just here for the money and would rather not be singing (working). But he is a stylist in a rather minimal way. I have other cd's of his work and probably will purchase more depending on his song selection.
