Al Jarreau Breakin' Away on Limited Edition 180g LP
Considered by many to be the greatest living jazz singer, Al Jarreau is an artist of stunning range. He's spent decades bending genres with his lithe voice, earning him the rare distinction of being the only artist to have won Grammy Awards in three different categories: pop, jazz and R&B.
Al's career breakthrough came in 1977 when Warner Bros. released the live album, Look to the Rainbow, which was culled from his first world tour from that same year, and earned the vocalist his first Grammy for Best Jazz Vocal Performance. His fourth album, All Fly Home, was released in 1978 to further accolades and a second Grammy for Best Jazz Vocalist.
It was followed by a string of innovative and original offerings, including 1980's This Time, and the million-selling Breakin' Away, which is home to the trio of hit singles "We're in This Love Together," "Breakin' Away" and "Teach Me Tonight" and brought Jarreau a broader audience and two more Grammy's with awards for Best Male Pop Vocalist and Best Male Jazz Vocalist.
