Jazz vocalist and producer Steve Tyrell has been acting since the age of 19, producing with the likes of Burt Bacharach and Hal David, working on such Dionne Warwick hits as The Look of Love and Alfie.
Since the end of the nineties, he has also recorded his own albums, making several ones based on jazz, holiday and Disney standards.
As an artist, all 7 of his American Standards albums have achieved Top 5 status on Billboard’s Jazz charts; and his first album, A New Standard, was among the best-selling jazz albums for over 5 years.
In 2005, after the death of Bobby Short, an American singer and pianist best known for his interpretations of songs by popular composers of the first half of the 20th century, Tyrell was asked by New York City’s Café Carlyle to take over their Holiday Season of November and December. Short had not missed in 36 years.
So, Tyrell returns this year for the 11th consecutive holiday season, with a four-week engagement running from Dec 1-Jan 2.
Tyrell will present a new show, “One More For The Road,” featuring a full set of Sinatra favorites in celebration of the late icon’s 100th birthday.
Performances will take place Tuesday-Saturday at 8:45 p.m. with a Friday and Saturday late show at 10:45 p.m.
