Al Jarreau RIP

Al and writing partner Lee Holdridge created the theme song for mid-1980s tv series Moonlighting, starring Bruce Willis and Cybil Shepherd. The track was produced by Nile Rodgers.


Here's Al's take on Teach Me Tonight, written by Gene De Paul and Sammy Cahn back in 1953. This is live with the US Air Force Studio Band

And, as a sidebar, Brenda Russell's 1983 tribute to Jarreau.
