No one on the contemporary scene can be compared to singer Al Jarreau. Not just for his Grammys in jazz, pop and R&B, but for the way he's been able to combine influences as diverse as church music, bebop and African and Asian speech and song. At this 45-minute program taken from his performance at the 2000 edition of the Montreal International Jazz Festival, "the acrobat of scat" performs a half-dozen numbers ranging from standards (Take Five, Since I Fell for You) to songs he's long been associated with (Mornin', High Crime) to newer material (the Latin-infected Tomorrow Today from the recent album of the same name). An unforgettable performance by a man who has produced one of the most distinctive bodies of music of our time. - MIJF
