Artist: Al Jarreau
Tune: Roof Garden
For the last several weeks, I have been celebrating the life of Al Jarreau.
So, I have been slowly counting down (in the wrong order) my favorite Al Jarreau tunes.
At #5 I put Roof Garden. Al Jarreau had an amazing voice that was meant for Jazz. He or his people really, really wanted Al to be top 10 hitmaster. Al had several minor hits but nothing that busted the charts. Breakin’ Away was his most commercial/crossover album. It was released in 1981. We’re in This Love Together was his monster hit but Roof Garden was his attempt at a dance/boogie tune. It is a fun tune. I love Al’s vocals in this tune.
