There is just so much to him I don’t think we’ll ever know … His whole body sings. It is as true to soul music as you can get; pure soul music making. He defines and redefines jazz all at once, and every time he sings – even if you can’t stop to listen – something in you stops so you can listen.
He’s one of those artists, who when they’ve finished a song, you want to talk about how incredible what they just did was and how it made you feel. You want to know that others felt it too.
Jarreau shares without discrimination. It’s in his heart, soul and voice and if you’ve had the pleasure of hearing him speak you know it’s very much the way he is. The artistry of Al Jarreau is all in the soul, in and of his music.
