Editors' Notes The genius of Al Jarreau was his ability to effortlessly blur the lines between jazz, pop and R&B. It's remarkable that one man delivered the silk-sheets-and-candlelight R&B of "We're in This Love Together", the scatting acrobatics of Jarreau's take on the Dave Brubeck classic "Take Five", and the pop balladry of "Mornin'”. The Wisconsin native scooped up multiple GRAMMY®s throughout his career, while 1987's Moonlighting TV theme song may be his most memorable creation. From singing in church as a child to performing with symphony orchestras and even on Broadway, Jarreau was one of the world's most versatile vocalists—everyone from beatboxers to scat singers and R&B crooners owe a little something to him.
