MEDIA ALERT! Steve Tyrell To Perform At Lincoln Center Tower Records In-Store Thursday, December 13th


  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,
  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.
