Al Jarreau

The only vocalist in history to net Grammy Awards in three different categories (jazz, pop, and R&B, respectively), Al Jarreau was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, on March 12, 1940. The son of a vicar, he earned his first performing experience singing in the church choir. After receiving his master's degree in psychology, Jarreau pursued a career as a social worker, but eventually he decided to relocate to Los Angeles and try his hand in show business, playing small clubs throughout the West Coast.

He recorded an LP in the mid-'60s, but largely remained an unknown, not reentering the studio for another decade. Upon signing to Reprise, Jarreau resurfaced in 1975 with We Got By, earning acclaim for his sophisticated brand of vocalese and winning positive comparison to the likes of Billy Eckstine and Johnny Mathis. After 1976's Glow, Jarreau issued the following year's Look to the Rainbow, a two-disc live set that reached the Top 50 on the U.S. album charts. With 1981's Breakin' Away, he entered the Top Ten, scoring a pair of hits with "We're in This Love Together" and the title track. After recording 1986's L Is for Lover with producer Nile Rodgers, Jarreau scored a hit with the theme to the popular television program Moonlighting, but his mainstream pop success was on the wane, and subsequent efforts like 1992's Heaven and Earth and 1994's Tenderness found greater success with adult contemporary audiences.

A string of budget compilations and original albums hit the shelves at the end of the decade, but into the turn of the century his original output slowed down. That was until he signed with the Verve/GRP label in 1998 and reunited with producer Tommy LiPuma. LiPuma had produced Jarreau's ostensible 1975 debut, We Got By, and the pairing seemed to reinvigorate Jarreau, who went on to release three stellar albums under LiPuma's guidance, including 2000's Tomorrow Today, 2002's All I Got, and 2004's Accentuate the Positive. Givin' It Up, recorded with George Benson and released in 2006, was nominated for three Grammy Awards -- each one for a different song. Jarreau returned with his first ever full-length holiday-themed album, Christmas, in 2008. Four years later he offered a live recording, Al Jarreau and the Metropole Orkest: Live, performing alongside the Dutch ensemble. ~ Jason Ankeny, Rovi

First song I played on the piano when I was 12!!! It was this song that changed the way I learned how to play. I HATED piano lessons with a passion!! One day, I decided to just play what I heard. It was then that I just the music flow through me. This song takes me back to that day, sitting on my piano bench..my fingers flowing.. Playing by ear was the key for me...but I may not be able to tell you what key I played!!

Wrong bio information for Al Jarreau.
mark.centi
This bio is supposed to be about Al Jarreau! You should have been able to write volumes about his career and successes! This was really lame and disapointing , certainly not what I have come to expect from Pandora!
teedub95464
One would think that Pandora could do better on errant bios and crazy wrong lyrics that pop up all to frequently. I know a cat they should hire for quality control.
Love dis song
What is the deal with the Bio?
This song isn't sad! Yea what is up with the bio?
I thought they were losing it...never heard Al Jareau's version hahaha
