New York, NY (Top40 Charts/ Concord Records) GRAMMY® Award winning vocalist and producer Steve Tyrell today celebrates the chart success of his new album, THAT LOVIN' FEELING, which entered the Billboard Jazz Chart at #5. THAT LOVIN' FEELING is Tyrell's 11th album and his 9th visit to the Top 5.

"I am thrilled to learn I have another Top 5 record! These sessions took me back to a lot of special moments in my life," said Tyrell.

Tyrell invited his legendary songwriter and artist friends to a heartfelt celebration of THAT LOVIN' FEELING. The renowned singer's ode to what he calls "The Great American Songbook 2" features classics by Carole King, Leiber and Stoller, Barry Mann & Cynthia Weil, Burt Bacharach and Jeff Barry/Ellie Greenwich - and guest appearances by Dave Koz, Neil Sedaka, B.J. Thomas, Bill Medley, Judith Hill, and Chuck Leavell.

Though the singer has ventured beyond the classic Sinatra era at times to bring his charismatic gravelly charm to projects celebrating the music of Disney and Burt Bacharach, THAT LOVIN' FEELING is a unique, highly personal project. The generous 15-track set is an intimate, decidedly jazzy, window into Tyrell's storied roots in the music business, dating back to the 60's when the Houston native, still in his late teens, moved to New York and began working in multiple capacities (A&R, promotions man, artist producer) at Florence Greenberg's Scepter Records.

During that era, Tyrell worked with and/or became close friends with the already established hit-making team of Burt Bacharach and Hal David, as well as upstarts cramped in tight Brill Building spaces whose songs came to define a generation: Carole King/Gerry Goffin, Barry Mann & Cynthia Weil, Jeff Barry and Ellie Greenwich and Neil Sedaka. Putting his own natural, charismatic flair on some of their best loved works, Tyrell - who produced the collection with Jon Allen, with stunning arrangements by co-producer Bob Mann - pays homage to all of them in fresh ways, including, on certain tracks, asking them to participate in the recording itself.

THAT LOVIN' FEELING is released on Concord Records. THAT LOVIN' FEELING is available on Amazon at and iTunes at

This year also marked the 10th anniversary to his taking over the Holiday Season at the Cafe Carlyle in New York City for the late legend Bobby Short.
