Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

This Time of Year serves up R&B and jazzy Christmas music from a singer whose style lies between the sophisticated elegance of Tony Bennett and the soulful grit of Dr. John. Tyrell clearly has a ball covering "The Christmas Song" and "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer," the latter featuring the great jazz trumpeter Clark Terry. Though Tyrell has a versatile backing band, the arrangements on these seasoned classics are on the safe side. But he really nails the sentiment of the holiday on the soulful title track. Here, Tyrell showcases his vocal prowess, using color and nuance to underscore the season's good cheer. A little more adventurousness would have lifted the CD above a solid stocking stuffer. --Martin Keller

5.0 out of 5 stars THIS TIME OF THE YEAR; A Joy of Joys August 28, 2003
Format:Audio CD
If you aren't ready for a really good time, you'd better watch out. Steve Tyrell's THIS TIME OF THE YEAR could blow you away. If you are, grab your copy and run--don't walk--to the nearest CD player. Smiling starts here.

Here is Steve at his rowdy, bluesy, romantic, joyful, swinging best; opening with a rollicking "Santa Claus is Coming To Town." That "rascal" "Rudolph, the Red-nosed Reindeer" never had so much fun, with trumpeter Terry Clark as Santa and Tyrell`s son Nick and the whole gang joining in. A terrific production. It should come as no great surprise to anyone if "Rudolph, you red-nosed reindeer" becomes the call of the wild this season.

Tyrell's rendition of the title song, Clyde Otis and Brook Benton's gorgeous "This Time of the Year," already getting a lot of air play last Christmas and bound to be even more popular this year, is sure to be evergreen.

Tyrell swings "Let It Snow" and "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas;" he gets low-down with "Merry Christmas, Baby" and "The Christmas Blues;" he romps joyfully through the snow on "Winter Wonderland" and grabs you by the heartstrings with "What Are You Doing New Year`s" and "I`ll Be Home For Christmas." And he puts the presents under the tree, where they rightfully belong.

Even sometimes-sulky Mel Torme would have to approve Tyrell`s handling of his treasure, "The Christmas Song." And Gene Autry himself must be grinning and tapping his boot at "Here Comes Santa Claus."

As with his two previous albums, A NEW STANDARD and STANDARD TIME, you can count on sparkling arrangements, the most fabulous band, and Steve doing that thing he does with his voice. And the by-now-famous Tyrell smile is evident throughout.

5.0 out of 5 stars COOL, COOL CHRISTMAS... October 24, 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Well, I know what I'll have on my CD player this Christmas. This records got it all, some big band, some blues, a little R&B and a few slower tunes to pull on the heartstrings a little bit for the holidays. Is there anything S.T. can't do? His wonderful voice that has become so familiar gives Dean Martin a run for his money on "Christmas Blues," and the title track "This Time of the Year" is so good I want to listen to it no matter what time of the year it is! S.T. is always so good at picking the best of the best songs, so its no suprise that this record brings all the songs you love, plus some that you didnt know you loved yet, but now you do. Now, something new to come along, thats not sappy, just good old Christmas fun and feeling to go along with your Frank Sinatra Christmas & Dino's Christmas that have been on the old record player for about 50 years now. This is that good, but fresh and new and and a combination of songs and styles that only Mr. Tyrell can pull off so beautifully.
This is THE Christmas album to own folks.

5.0 out of 5 stars This Time Of Year CD review December 8, 2002
Format:Audio CD
I couldn't wait to get my hands on this CD! And I was not disappointed one bit! Steve put a totally new sound and feel to these holiday classics! Steve's unique voice combined with the band's expertise sounded magical. It definitely will put anyone in the holiday spirit. It's a must buy! And if you don't have his two other standard CDs - they are a must buy too! Great, great music!

5.0 out of 5 stars STEVE TYRELL AT HIS BEST November 7, 2002
Format:Audio CD
I have run out of words to describe the magic of Steve Tyrell.This album is so great. The arrangements terrific, the musician's blend perfectly and I like the fact that it is a family endeavor. I am so anxious to see the Christmas show at the Catalina B & G with his "Band of Brother's".This album goes to everyone on my Christmas list.

5.0 out of 5 stars My Favorite Time Of The Year December 3, 2005
Format:Audio CD
This is one of the nicest treats Christmas is made of. A Christmas CD to listen to and enjoy this time of the year. Steve Tyrell produced and recorded an impressive line-up of Holiday songs with the backed up of his perfectly chosen musicians headed by an ace arranger/guitarist Bob Mann, who also co-produced this album.

One of my top favorites from this collection is "What Are You Doing New Year's Eve?" It's also one of the best songs composed and written by Frank Loesser, a composer in the category of Irving Berlin and Cole Porter in the sense that they didn't need a songwriting partner to come up with a song.

The charms of "I'll Be Home For Christmas," "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas" and "The Christmas Song" will leave you wanting for more listens.

The lively and jazzy interpretations of "Winter Wonderland," "Rudolph, The Red Nosed Reindeer," a duet with trumpeter Clark Terry and "Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!" will make you get up and put your best foot forward and start dancing.

"Here Comes Santa Claus" and "Santa Claus Is Coming To Town" will bring a smile on your face and will transport you back in time with your most cherished childhood memories.

You'll love this Christmas CD not only for its fabulous repertoire, flawless interpretations and marvelous arrangements but also for its liner notes full of black and white Holiday photos of Steve Tyrell and his family. It's one of my very favorites from my Christmas collection.

Happy Listening and Happy Holidays to one and all!

Steve Tyrell has paid a lot of dues as a producer, and has done a decent job as a jazz singer over the past 10 years or so. Some may not like his gravely voice (I'll call it 'Dr. Read more
