GRAMMY-AWARD WINNER STEVE TYRELL HONORS THE MUSIC OF AMERICAN LYRICIST SAMMY CAHN IN IT'S MAGIC: THE SONGS OF SAMMY CAHN SET FOR RELEASE MAY 14, 2013
Tyrell to Celebrate a Decade of Headlining at Café Carlyle
Hitmaker and beloved crooner, Steve Tyrell is set to release a bewitching new album titled It's Magic: The Songs of Sammy Cahn on May 14, 2013. The album pays tribute to the incredible work of Sammy Cahn whose songs are firmly embedded in the Great American Songbook and during the early 60s defined a generation, giving life to the Rat Pack's repertoire (international release dates may vary).
The album coincides with Tyrell's newly extended contract with Café Carlyle to continue his seasonal residency through 2014. Tyrell succeeded the legendary Bobby Short who played Café Carlyle for more than three decades before his passing in 2005.
Complemented with longtime collaborators, Tyrell explores 13 of his favorite Cahn songs, illustrating their everlasting vitality. The musicians include guitarist Bob Mann, pianists Alan Broadbent and Quinn Johnson, bassists Ed Howard and David Finck, drummers Kevin Winard and Jim Sapporito, and feature soloist David Mann on saxophone, and Lew Soloff on trumpet. The arrangements are provided by a legendary group that include Alan Broadbendt, Don Sebesky, John Oddo, and Bob Mann, and is produced by Steve Tyrell and Jon Allen
Throughout It's Magic, Tyrell's whiskey-sour baritone swaggers and brings a modern sound to the quintessential 1960s Rat Pack style. Of all of the Great American Songbook composers, Tyrell points out that it was Cahn, who was the primary voice of that '60s generation, as he wrote so many classics during that era. "There was a period in American pop culture where the old-world thinking ran into the sexual revolution. That's around 1958. Before that, everybody was 'goody two-shoes,' sleeping in twin beds on TV. Then all of sudden, there was the Rat Pack, Las Vegas, James Bond, and Playboy magazine. Things started getting sexy," Tyrell explains. This is the period most revered by this current generation as witnessed by the success of Mad Men, the remakes of Ocean's Eleven, Twelve and Thirteen, and this year's salute to James Bond at the 2013 Oscars. And then there's Diddy with his Rat Pack Vodka commercials.
In addition to celebrating Cahn's centennial, Tyrell salutes Van Heusen -- one of Cahn's most frequent collaborators -- who was also born 100 years ago," It's Magic includes Cahn-Van Heusen classics such as the swooning opener "Come Fly with Me," a classic made famous by Frank Sinatra (who recorded 87 of Cahn's songs)
It's a performance, and it is terrific! Enjoy, rather than look for a way to criticize. This man is terrific. I'm a Dean Martin fan, and Steve Tyrell interests me more than any other performer since Dean. Just fabulous.
