Steve Tyrell may not have the vocal chops of, say, Tony Bennett, but he’s got a positive energy and a sheer love of singing that have endeared him to a strong and ever-growing fan base. The first holiday music album from this gruff-voiced swinger finds Tyrell in his element, covering classic tunes with the assistance of top-drawer jazz musicians. All the secular jewels are here: “Santa Claus Is Coming to Town,” “The Christmas Song,” and “I’ll Be Home for Christmas” among them; Tyrell also finds room for everyone’s favorite piece of holiday grit, “Merry Christmas Baby,” and "The Christmas Blues," as well as the lovely Frank Loesser ballad “What Are You Doing on New Year’s Eve?” His obvious affection for this material, and the swinging rapport he has with his musicians, particularly the great trumpeter and singer Clark Terry, who is featured on a terrific rendition of “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer,” make this album a joy.
