Editorial Reviews

2012 release from the Jazz vocalist often cited as the world's true "romance crooner" and proponent of all things love. I'll Take Romance consists purely of romantic standards- an homage to The Great American Songbook with tracks culled from several genres expressing the theme of romance. Featuring such gems as "That's All," "Taking a Chance On Love," "All of You" and the title track, Tyrell also covers a host of R&B classics, including the Etta James hits "At Last" and "Trust In Me;" Sam Cooke's "(I Love You) For Sentimental Reasons;" and Little Willie John's "Talk to Me."

(From VocalStandards.com review)

With his Concord Records debut album -- I'll Take Romance -- Tyrell delivers the romantic goods in boatloads.

Superbly produced, this LP weaves an interesting path through classic standards, R&B numbers and blues ballads ... capturing both the tortured and the joyous affairs of the heart.

The track list of classic and newer standards ride comfortably on the back of Bob Mann's wonderful "Bacharachian" arrangements ... and often his crisp, classic jazz guitar accompaniment as well. This is good stuff.

As expected...

Tyrell not only brings his distinctive vocal stylings to I'll Take Romance, but as you would expect he exercises his Grammy award winning producer skill set to great affect. Steve collaborates with long-time friends Bob Mann and Jon Allen on this, his first Concord effort ... rendering a best-of-breed production with a rich, round vocal track -- elegantly threaded in and around Mann's balanced scores.

The sound staging is both expansive and exacting ... Steve and every instrument in place, offering a warm natural clarity without appearing too forward or competing. Again, perfect balance ... very nice.

To put this production quality into perspective, I saw Steve Tyrell twice in 2011 at gigs in Austin and Houston. He performed all of these songs in those shows, and listening to I'll Take Romance in prep for this review was just like taking in another Tyrell concert appearance.

The guy can sing too!

We need to come up with a nickname for ST. Mel Tormé's vocal distinction made him into the "The Velvet Fog" ... Tyrell's sultry, smokey, bluesy vocal style is unique and equally distinctive. Somebody needs to get him "marketed up" with a cool nickname!

4.0 out of 5 stars My favorite version of The Way you Look Tonight February 18, 2013
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
He was the singer in Father of the Bride for a reason. His version of The Way you Look tonight is my favorite. I like it even more than Frank Senatra's. This is a collection of romantic ballads. Nice for ...dare I say it....a wedding.

Steve Tyrell is predictable and very good. The Great American Songbook is in good hands with Steve. Every album he does has good vibes.
