"Back To Bacharach" continues Tyrell's foray into pop standards and remains quite close to the winning formula he developed on his previous albums.
Virtually all the songs on the album are so well-known that it would be difficult not to compare them to the originals; the only difficulty would be knowing exactly which artist did record the original, since all of them had been so well-covered both by famous and not quite so famous singers.
Steve possesses a pleasantly husky voice, but has limited range.
He put this quality to good use in his version of "Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head".
However, tracks like "Walk on By", "Always Something There to Remind Me", and "This Guy's in Love with You" find Tyrell straining to reach the high notes.
There is nothing to stretch the imagination here, Steve's versions are all impeccably performed, perfectly in tune, very pleasant, no chance of alienating any existing fan.
On "I Say A Little Prayer" and "Don't Make Me Over", he duets gracefully with Patti Austin, who, along with Regina Belle, remains one of the best duet partners of all time. Patti nicely complements, but never overshadows Steve's voice.
Mostly Tyrell sticks close to Bacharach's original arrangements, although "The Look of Love" uses bass and guitar lines to give it more of a rock feel.
The result is always pleasant, yet Tyrell's takes very rarely leave a lasting mark in a listener's ear.
Many guest artists: Herb Alpert, vocalists Patti Austin and Lynne Fiddmont, Bob Mann, with Bacharach lending a hand as pianist on Bacharach and David's anthem, "What the World Needs Now is Love," a song Steve Tyrell believes is "more relevant now than it ever was.

Steve is my favorite singer and interpretator of the great American Songbook compositions so I had trepidations as to whether I would enjoy this new endeavor of his tribute to Bacharach's music. I heard him give a preview of this new CD at his concert in Malibu and was thoroughly blown away. I loved it. There is a soft jazz approach to the tunes and the integrity of the music is completely maintained. The use of backup singers adds to the feel of today's music sound.Back to Bacharach

There are fourteen tracks in the album with duets shown in parentheses: Walk on By, The Look of Love, This Guy's in Love (Herb Alpert and Burt Bacharach), One Less Bell to Answer, What the World Needs Now (Rod Stewart, James Taylor, and Dionne Warwick), Reach Out for Me, I say A Little Prayer for You (Patti Austin), I Just don't know What To Do with Myself (Burt Bacharach), Always Something There to Remind Me, Don't Make Me Over (Bacharach and Austin), Close to You, A House Is Not A home, Alfie, and Raindrops Keep Fallin on My Head. Bob Mann and Steve produced this (winning formula) with Jon Allen cooproducing.

The concept of this cd started in 2002 but was abandoned due to the passing of Steve's talented and lovely wife, Stephanie. During the last six years, the decision to complete this album was always there and finally reached its fruition in 2008. So, this particular CD holds a special meaning to Steve. In addition, Steve credits Burt as serving as his mentor and "professor."

All of the tracks are delightful to listen to and are well crafted. I consider Burt the pioneer in creating the soft jazz feeling in his compositions.

For reasons beyond the scope of this discussion, I decided to re-visit this CD to make sure I still agree with my original review. Sure as shootin', I was waaaaay off regarding the quality of the recording. While my original positive comments regarding the music & performances still apply, I've made a 180 degree turnaround regarding the recording quality. This thing sounds great .... especially in the areas of sonic clarity and soundstage/image placement... in particuler, but not necessairly limited to, track # 5. Anyone who really listens to music and utilizes a quality audio system will immediately appreciate the placement of the individual vocalists within the soundstage. Awsome. And to make things even better, this kind of care in engineering is evident throughout the recording. My rating is now a firm 4 9/10 stars (5 stars to me means perfect, but, to me, nothing in this world is perfect). Take a few minutes to read the liner notes.... I think they reflect the kind of love that is evident in this entire production.

BELOW IS MY ORIGINAL REVIEW

What a way to kill good music!! Come on... muddy, muffled, dull, soft, what ever. It's 2008... we've been doing better since the 1970's! But the music.... SUPERB!...especially Alphie, perhaps the best love song ever written. Too bad the audio quality is so poor... sounds like an AM radio. Steve... talk to me!!! You're destroying your image. Frank and Nelson would not approve. So it's 3 1/2 from me... sorry, if it sounds bad, I just can't listen to it.
