Al Jarreau is dead to me
Al Jarreau, famed R&B and jazz singer died Sunday morning … according to his reps.
The 7-time Grammy winner had been hospitalized recently in Los Angeles. Amid his medical battle … he announced he would be retiring. He’d been touring almost non-stop for 50 years.
A message on his website says he passed away while in the hospital.
Just last week, Al’s son said his father was singing „Moonlighting“ to one of his nurses.
After All is a brilliant and beautiful love song. My favorite song by him.
I could never handle all of the facial contortions and mugging he did whenever he sang. Certainly not glad he’s dead, but I’ll never miss him the way I miss, say, Leonard Cohen.

I hate when I click on a thread without realizing thread watcher is doing its little shuffle and inadvertently click another thread without realizing it. I thought the OP had written about Jarreau:
[quote]Scary guy. Angry. Very robotic sounding. SENIOR policy advisor.
Loved the guy over the years. I think I bought every CD he ever put out.
Surprised to see his biggest Hot 100 hit was „We’re In This Love Together“ (No. 15), bigger than „Mornin'“ (No. 21), and „Moonlighting“ theme (No. 23).
He was without question the single most evolved and kind person I have ever met.
Loved his portrayal of Yizzle Dithers in the SCTV remake of „The Jazz Singer“.
Hate the racism that is occurring. Pointless bitchery doesn’t include being a racist.
I remember one of those Datalounge threads back in the day where apparently some black lesbian was spilling the tea on those gay/bi people back in the day. She mentioned some club all those gay bi black celebs would frequent. She mentioned Al used to perform there regularly
Only 7 Grammy wins? Obviously the white man tried to keep him down too.
