So, I have been slowly counting down (in the wrong order) my favorite Al Jarreau tunes.
Now, for #4
Artist: Al Jarreau
Tune: Spain (Live)
Although I really like the live version (too much Steve Gadd on drums and not enough Al singing), I love the album version. You can feel the full range of Al’s voice in this tune. He hits the rapid fire notes – I can remember the rain in the December the leaves are brown on the ground. Damn that’s just great. You also have free flowing long, luscious tones. It is just wonderful. Enjoy.
