About this album
Al Jarreau’s style bridges Jon Hendricks’s vocalese and Bobby McFerrin’s incredible flights of fancy. This CD, with Diana Krall’s rhythm section—guitarist Anthony Wilson, drummer Peter Erskine, and bassist Christian McBride—should please fans of albums like Jarreau’s phenomenal 1977 live LP, Look to the Rainbow. look to the rainbow’s “I’m Beginning To See The Light” is illuminated by Larry Goldings’s down-home Hammond organ, while I’m Beginning To See The Light’s “Midnight Sun” bops with hip-hop-friendly rim shots. Jarreau’s tenor tones curve with saxophonic dexterity and pulse with percussive precision, especially on Dizzy Gillespie’s “Groovin’ High,” where he slyly drops in a few words from the old show tune, “Whispering.” —Eugene Holley, Jr.
