Barnes & Noble - David Cohen
If you missed Al Jarreau during his six-year hiatus from the major record labels, fear not, he's back, and just the way you remember him. The inviting smooth-jazz vocalist sounds great -- mellow and personal when called for, joyous and playful when the mood changes. Al's got some friendly assistance at times: saxophonist Boney James and trumpeter Rick Braun pitch in, and Vanessa Williams duets with Jarreau on "God's Gift to the World." But A. J. sounds just fine on his own, particularly on a lovely vocal adaptation of Weather Report's "A Remark you Made," -- originally found on the band's HEAVY WEATHER album -- a Jarreau personal favorite -- here called "Something You ...

If you missed Al Jarreau during his six-year hiatus from the major record labels, fear not, he's back, and just the way you remember him. The inviting smooth-jazz vocalist sounds great -- mellow and personal when called for, joyous and playful when the mood changes. Al's got some friendly assistance at times: saxophonist Boney James and trumpeter Rick Braun pitch in, and Vanessa Williams duets with Jarreau on "God's Gift to the World." But A. J. sounds just fine on his own, particularly on a lovely vocal adaptation of Weather Report's "A Remark you Made," -- originally found on the band's HEAVY WEATHER album -- a Jarreau personal favorite -- here called "Something You Said." The singer's touching lyrics are delivered with arresting subtlety and warmth. Jarreau was there when smooth jazz started -- this recording gives evidence that he's still a leader of the vocal pack.
All Music Guide - Jonathan Widran
After leaving Warner Bros. in the mid-'90s, the legendary singer and only one to win Grammys in pop, R&B, and jazz kept busy enough with his endless concert globetrotting and occasional symphony gig to wait until the right new situation came along. Signing with GRP meant reuniting with label chairman Tommy LiPuma, who produced his first album in 1975 and has known Jarreau's unique multi-genre vision for over a quarter century. That combination sounds as fresh now as it always has. Working with top soulful smooth-jazz producer Paul Brown best known for his association with saxman Boney James, who appears here helps the singer bring out his adult contemporary best. Depending on the track, he modulates his voice from soft and airy -- as on the coolly romantic "Just to Be Loved" and the dreamy "another chance" tune "Let Me Love You" -- to crazily percussive a la Bobby McFerrin on the irrepressible a cappella closer "Puddit Put It in Your Pocket," co-written with Joe Sample. The best part of Jarreau is his joyous unpredictability. He draws us into a thick funk jam like "In My Music" featuring a chunky guitar solo by former Rufus member Tony Maiden, then drenches himself with a spicy Latin horn splashes on the wacky title track. That song, co-written with keyboardist Freddie Ravel, begins with a tongue-in-cheek Jarreau approximating Ricky Ricardo, then switching off between his unique vocal percussion and a softer tone. The tune can be enjoyed as both a danceable Latin jam or as a social statement wondering about "tomorrow's child today." On the more spiritual side, one of the most beautiful tracks is the anthem like "God's Gift to the World," a duet with Vanessa Williams. Whether it's yesterday, today, or tomorrow, Al Jarreau never fails to keep listeners on their toes.

    5 stars are not enough!

    This is a perfect album. There are no other words to describe Al Jarreau's latest . Each time I put it on at work, I intend to listen to it once and the next thing I know it's time to go home. I'll listen to this one everyday. The songs are beautiful , his voice is wonderful and he's the master. He'll fill your heart with joy.
