Legendary Al Jarreau Dead At 76!
Reader, my prayers, and condolences to Jazz legend Al Jarreau wife Susan, son Ryan, friends and fans. The Jazz great died today at the age of 76, his manager confirms.
I have been blessed to have grown up with your music that has forever placed a smile upon my soul.
His death comes just days after Jarreau entered a Los Angeles hospital and announced his retirement from touring, citing exhaustion. The singer had been touring for nearly 50 years, making up for a late professional start, as he didn’t secure a recording contract until he was 35.
