Al Jarreau

The third LP by a gifted jazz singer-songwriter (he has a master’s in psychology) was cut live on his European tour this year. Jarreau stirs audiences with his incredible vocal imitations of flutes, strings, woodwinds and even birds. (Yet his scat-talk rivals Ella Fitzgerald.) One of the few non-Jarreau cuts is a fine tribute to the Dave Brubeck standby Take Five.
