Album Notes
Al Jarreau, vocals
Lou Harrison's "A Portrait"
The California Symphony, Barry Jekowsky,conductor

Gifted with a voice that has been likened to a caressing breeze on silk, the innovative musical expressions of the five time GRAMMY AWARD winner AL Jarreau have made him one of the most exciting and critically acclaimed performers of our time. With a host of chart topping singles spanning musical genres, including "Breakin' Away", "We're in this love together", "Mornin." and "Boogie down", he holds the honor of being one of the rare artists to have one GRAMMIES in three different categories: Pop, Jazz and R&B. On this CD, Al Jarreau is featured in a rap riff of Lou Harrison's "Story of the 3 Coyotes."

Lou Harrison has stated that music is essentially "a song and a dance," expansive melodies and lively rhythm. He visited Japan, Korea, Taiwan and Indonesia, and became very influenced by the Gamelan Orchestra. He was fond of using percussion and bell effects together in his compositions.

Al Jarreau is the best! This album is probably the best thing I've heard in a while from him.
