Al Jarreau – Legendary Jazz Singer – Dies at 76

The jazz great Al Jarreau, dies today at age 76.  He was such an awesome singer and even won 7 Grammy awards. He had so many great songs including, “Mornin'” and my personal favorite “We’re In This Love Together” to name just a few.  I remember him most for the theme from the TV show “Moonlighting” that starred Bruce Willis and Cybil Shepherd.

He was born in Milwaukee back on March 12, 1940 and his real name was Alwyn Lopez Jarreau.  His greatest success was during the 80’s, but his music is so timeless and even now listening to some of his songs you remember how amazing he was.  I keep seeing he was nicknamed the “Acrobat of Scat” for his vocal stylings and I can say there were not many like him and probably never will be again.

Rest in Peace sir!!
