Just read that Al Jarreau has passed away, just a few days after announcing his retirement from performing.  Embarrassed

He was one of my absolute faves.

Played this song so many times when it came out around 1980 or so. Loved his "vocal gymnastics".
His take on Chick Corea's "Spain"

Bone Thugs-N-Harmony were the first ones to refer to Cleveland as 'Da Land' in 1994 not the Cavs or Lebron

I was never a fan but the man certainly had a singing style all his own. Rest in peace, sir.
