This Guy's in Love

This Guy's in Love

by Steve Tyrell


While it seems that every pop music figure over 40 is cutting a standards recording these days, Steve Tyrell was actually ahead of the trend. His 1999 album, A New Standard, announced the arrival of an enthusiastic new singer with a genuine affection for great old songs. The fact that Tyrell had been a behind-the-scenes figure as a producer rather than a performer didn’t seriously affect his vocal talents. As he quickly proved over the course of two more successful albums -- Standard Time and This Time of Year -- Tyrell could indeed interpret standards with a great deal of heart and a raspy charm that has consistently won over fans. This Guy's in Love continues the winning formula. Swinging lightly and aided by the first-rate support of seasoned jazz musicians including the legendary brassman Clark Terry and saxophonist Michael Brecker, Tyrell enlivens sterling tunes from the Great American Songbook, plus “This Guy’s in Love with You,” a winner from the pen of Tyrell’s old friend Burt Bacharach, who also makes a guest appearance here. From his decades in the business, Tyrell knows enough to not mess with a good thing, and This Guy's in Love is a good thing his growing audience will want.

Once again Steve Tyrell has masterfully taken some of the greatest songs of past generations and updated them with his unique smooth jazz style. This is another "must have" in his collection for anyone who loves romantic, sentimental songs.

My husband and I think Steve Tyrell is one of the most talented and entertaining singers around. He truly has one of the most "sexiest" voices. We recommend any of his CDs. They just keep getting better and better. Thanks Steve for your music.

When I listen to "This Guy's In Love" it makes me feel good. I could listen to this CD all day and night and never get tired of it. Finally, a good romantic, wonderful singer. If I could have my fantasy come true, it would be to have Steve Tyrell sing these songs to me all night long. He is wonderful!

Three things to a perfect evening with the one you love. A great bottle of wine, A great steak, And Steve Tyrell in the cd player. Life doesn't get any better!

Instant favorite. Nobody does standards better. Everything Steve does is absolutely great.

I was checking out of your store the other evening, and noticed the Rod Stewart CD of standards next to the register. I thought, Steve Tyrell is so superior in that genre. He should be in this kiosk. I love Rod, but he can't hold a candle to Steve's style, timing, feeling or voice. I know it's about name recognition to you. But, believe me, Steve's CD is a gold mine. He is the music. He gives it life and melts our hearts. He is a wonderfully romantic holiday gift. Thanks.

The long-awaited arrival of Steve Tyrell's latest CD is proof that perfection can really be improved on. Steve is the undisputed master interpreter of standard songs and his raspy yet mellow voice infuses these selections with a sincerity and ardor that is matchless. His singing projects a wonderfully joyous sexiness and impeccable style. It's like a warm hug that won't let go. As with his previous CD's, Steve surrounds himself with musicians who are absolutely music's royalty. This partnership results in a quintessential collection of standard songs that is flawless and ready to be heard again and again. Steve, "This Fan's in Love!" Theresa Gagnon

It's the holidays...Treat your self and every one you care for...give the new Steve Tyrell!He's no Rod Stewart and Rod is definitely no Steve Tyrell!Once again Steve takes these great old songs and makes them his...No one and I mean NO ONE does a song like Steve Tyrell!That great Texas soul shines through. Every song is from "deep in the heart of" Steve Tyrell! Buy one or two or a dozen and give them to EVERY ONE you love!

What a joy! I'm so glad Steve has come out with another album. His rendition of Burt Bacharach's "This Guy's in Love With You" is fantastic. A unique rendition by a unique artist.

I first heard Steve Tyrell at a dinner party at a friend's house. (The voice sounded familiar and later I learned it was because of the association of his music with the movie "Father of The Bride".) Much to everyone's delight, we listened to the project several times during that evening and the host in turn bought it for me the next day. The album was his first, "A New Standard." The new project "This Guy's In Love", could as easily be titled "Improving the Standards." His amazingly unique voice and flawless production lends itself to the legions of the all time great performers. The artist, just as the music, are timeless. This new album combines a carefully crafted selection of songs, marries it with splendid production and a consistent, yet powerful vocal performance. I can literally listen to his work over and over again and never grow tired of hearing it. Why Steve Tyrell is not on the lips of every music lover is beyond my perception. Buy this one. You can thank me later.

I have all Steve's albums, & this one is one of his best! He just gets better & better. Everday I get my 'Steve fix', and play his CD's every single day! He's wonderful and I LOVE HIS VOICE!!

Steve Tyrell brings some new life to some already great tunes. He is unique in his phrasing and his smooth delivery reminds us of Mel Torme on steroids. Steve is simply the best we have today. When it comes to standards, there is Diana Krall and Steve Tyrell. No one else even comes close. Ron Johnson Philadelphia

If you are a fan of great jazz, you'll love this CD -- the best I've heard in a long time! A musician's musician and a true artist! Where has he been all these years?
Guest More than 1 year ago
After reading his bio, I answered by own question, but he has hidden his singing talent long enough!! I cannot get enough of him. I love this guy too!! He adds such a fresh, romantic feel to these great tunes! I have bought everything I could find by him and love all of them. I thought I had heard these standards done by the best, but Steve Tyrell is the man! Waiting for new CD's. I think he could sing anything, not just old standards.

It has been our pleasure to see Steve Tyrell live at the Catalina Bar and Grill in Hollywood, CA. His style, presentation and honest love for his music is quite apparent. He not only is a true talent, but surrounds himself with the absolute best musicians in the music world today. When I heard of his new album, "This Guy's in Love", I rushed out and purchased it immediately. If you love Jazz, Blues and Big Band music, you will love this piece of work. Thank you, Steve for another great album.

This is his best effort yet. I love his throaty interpretation of standard songs, songs we've all heard before by various artists. "This Guys In Love" is a perfect title and his rendition is superb. The choice of songs on this CD is just wonderful, bringing back memory after memory. I found Steve through "Father of the Bride" and still tear up every time I hear "The Way You Look Tonight". My daughter had it played for her first dance in her January 2003 wedding.

How can you go wrong? Steve Tyrell's voice is the very best. He's one of the best like Sinatra, Bennett, Martin.... I love his style and I love his voice. I give his new album a two thumbs up ! !
