MEDIA ALERT! Steve Tyrell To Perform At Lincoln Center Tower Records In-Store Thursday, December 13th
Dec 12, 2001
WHO: Columbia Records recording artist Steve Tyrell WHAT: An in-store performance and fan meet-and-greet to sign copies of Standard Time WHERE: Tower Records - Lincoln Center (1961 Broadway at 66th Street, Manhattan) WHEN: Thursday, December 13, 2002, beginning at 6pm (Media Crews to Arrive at 5:30pm) Columbia Records recording artist Steve Tyrell will make a special in-store appearance at the Tower Records - Lincoln Center location to perform selections from, and autograph copies of, Standard Time, his new album on Columbia Records. Tyrell's last album, A New Standard was the #4 Top-Selling Jazz album of 2000, according to SoundScan. In addition, the record secured the #7 Top Jazz Album slot and Tyrell the #6 Top Jazz Artist position in the Billboard 2000 Year End roundup. A New Standard remained in the Top 20 of Billboard's Jazz Chart, more than 89 weeks after its release. Like its predecessor, Standard Time brings together a deluxe selection of much-loved jazz "classics," performed with the exhilarating earthiness that has earned Tyrell the acclaim of musicians, music critics, and fans alike. Again, Tyrell has teamed up with some of the great jazz and big band players of the swing band era -- from trumpeters Clark Terry and Harry "Sweets" Edison to saxophonist Plas Johnson to harmonica virtuoso "Toots" Thielemans -- to bring an aura of unassailable authenticity to the album. Among the numerous highpoints of Standard Time is a delightfully sassy duet with Jane Monheit, whose latest album, Come Dream With Me, is a "traditional jazz" bestseller.
