al jarreau

By February 3, 2012blog

Went to see Al Jarreau on Friday in Dubai. It takes a lot to drag me to concerts but this is one that I didnt want to miss. Al was always one of my music idols and I never thought I would see him live but here he was and it was amazing. True magic, extraordinary musicianship and quite phenomenally inspiring. For all young computer based musicians – dont ignore the lessons to be learned from the greats. Thanks for the music Al and keep it going. He also paid tearfully beautifuland moving respects to another recently departed genius, Dave Brubeck. Then he sang Take 5 in memory…….wonderful
