    Sorry to hear this - always enjoyed his music, especially when I was in my 20's I seemed to have gone through a period where I explored the jazz genre.

    If you're a marching band geek from the mid-80's or thereafter, you may have played "Boogie Down":

    Al Jarreau is one of my all time favorites. He was a very unique entertainer and loved what he did. I will miss him dearly. Thanks, Al, you always make my day a bit happier.
