Got to know him through 'Moonlighting'.
'Since I fell for you' sealed it for me. A true great.

If you don't know this guy then I suggest that you listen to the album 'This Time' a sonic masterpiece! It contains the greatest session aces and engineering.

One of the nicest guys I ever met. When I lived in L.A I used to run into to him at a place called the Star Gardens. I was surprised because it was a topless joint. He was friends with one of the dancers and used to sit there drinking their cheap red wine and tipping her with many dollar bills. A priceless memory. He was as kind as you would expect from his personality. A unique voice and incredible talent. Bloody shame. RIP Al.

I just went and listened to a few tracks and reminded myself what a truly AMAZING singer this man was.

Simply stunning!

Thank you Mr Jarreau for your music.

Tell his family and from me to Al's family and from JJ that I hope they are doing all right. So much not good right now.
I do realize that this was some time ago - but I'm in a mood.. And I still hope they are alright.
