FOLSOM — Esteemed vocalist Steve Tyrrell — a Billboard chart-topping jazz singer and legendary record producer — joins two-time Grammy winner vocalist/pianist Diane Schuur in a celebration of The American Songbook at Three Stages at Folsom Lake College on Thursday, March 28.

While Schuur made her first record in 1971 at 18 and JazzTimes said of Schuur’s last studio album, “The Gathering,” it “represents Schuur at her absolute best,” Tyrell’s story winds around a different path.

Tyrell, also a Grammy Award-winning vocalist, has been called a renaissance man. In his four and a half decades in the music business, he has achieved great success as an artist, producer, songwriter, music supervisor and performer.

As an artist, all seven of his American Standards albums have achieved top five status on Billboard’s jazz charts, and his first album, “A New Standard” was amongst the best-selling jazz albums for moe than five years.

With his breakthrough performances in “Father of the Bride” and “Father of the Bride II,” Tyrell reinvented and re-popularized classic pop standards for a modern-day audience.

While he tours mainly with his own band, he also enjoys playing with some of the most renowned orchestras in the land, and has appeared with The Boston Pops, twice with The New York Pops, The Nashville Symphony, and The Houston Symphony on several occasions.

His songs have been recorded by such revered artists as Ray Charles, Diana Ross, LL Cool J and Elvis Presley, and his song “How Do You Talk To An Angel,” written and produced for Aaron Spelling’s Fox television series “The Heights,” was a No. 1 pop hit in 1992.

Aside from being a Grammy Award-winner, Tyrell has earned two Emmy nominations, three Ace Nominations, 2004 American Society of Young Musicians All That Jazz Award, 2004 The Wellness Community Human Spirit Award, 2006 Society of Singers Lifetime Achievement Award and 2008 Los Angeles Jazz Society’s Jazz Vocalist of the Year.

Schuur has built a stellar career by embracing and exploring nearly every corner of the 20th century American musical landscape.

Known to personify the composer’s intentions of the Great American Songbook, Schuur swings with heartfelt intensity. Her expressive vocal deliveries have placed her amongst jazz greats such as Dinah Washington, Ella Fitzgerald and Sarah Vaughn.

Schuur has performed in some of the most prestigious venues including New York’s Carnegie Hall, the Kennedy Center and twice at the White House.

With an illustrious recording career that began in the 1980s, Schuur has received numerous awards including two Grammys: “Timeless” (1986) and “Diane Schuur and the Count Basie Orchestra” (1987).

The recording with the Basie Orchestra spent an impressive 33 consecutive weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard Jazz charts and received three Grammy nominations: “Pure Schuur” (1991 that reached the No. 1 spot on the Contemporary Jazz charts), “Love Songs” (1993) and “The Christmas Song” from the compilation album “Christmas Collection” (1993).

Schuur has proven her staying power with a steady flow of releases including “Heart To Heart” — a collaborative recording with B.B. King that entered the Billboard Jazz charts at No. 1, “Love Walked In,” “Swingin’ For Schuur with Maynard Ferguson,” “Midnight” (produced by Barry Manilow), “Schuur Fire” with the Caribbean Jazz Project and “Some Other Time,” a tribute to her late mother.

After signing with Vanguard Records, Schuur released her label debut, “The Gathering,” June 2011.

Schuur’s album is unique in both material and style, and features special guests Alison Krauss, Vince Gill, Mark Knopfler, Larry Carlton and Kirk Whalum.

The show is scheduled to start at 7:30 p.m.

Tickets are $25 to $35. Premium tickets are available for $45. The tickets may be purchased online at threestages.net or from the Three Stages ticket office at 916-608-6888 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m, Monday through Saturday, and two hours before show time.

Three Stages is located 10 College Parkway in Folsom.
