I have Steve several times live in concert. His shows are wonderful! His performances at the Catalina Jazz Club in L.A. and the Cafe Carlyle in NYC were great. If you haven't seen him perform live, you should!

I discovered this unique voice a few years ago and have added a few of his very pleasant CDs in my collection.

I'm a 70-year-old native born New Orleanian who loves music, plays amateur piano and who considers the Great American Song Book the soundtrack of his life. (I just heard him mention Allen Tousaint who lived around the corner from my grandmother's house in Girt Town and with whom I used to tinkle the piano when we were very young back in the 1950s).

The greatest music maker of my life was Carmen McRae, whom I was lucky enough to discover in Newport, RI in 1961 and with whom I became a life-long close friend -- and #1 fan -- until her death in 1994.

I tried to see Tyrell a few years ago at the Blue Note but he had to cancell (he'd know why) and was replaced at the last minute by Mark Murphy.

I'm happy to hear that you have brought him to your show. I didn't know that he was at the Carlyle. Maybe I'll get over there to see what he is like in person.

Wouldn't have know anything about Steve Tyrell had it not been for John Pizzarelli and Jessica Molaskey's syndicated radio show, Radio Deluxe which I here via the Internet. Now I am a great fan. How can you not love that voice?

Barry White was a record producer before singing.
