Al Jarreau On The Danger Of Going Over The Edge

Al Jarreau Performs

Interview originally aired August 17, 2004.

Late multi-Grammy winning singer Al Jarreau joined Michael Bourne for this chat in 2004. Covering topics including his influences from Jon Henricks and Johnny Mathis to his ability to switch genres, Jarreau enjoys the conversation so much that before it ends he's asking Bourne for a copy so he can hear it again.

Corey fell in love with jazz by the time he got to track 2 on his first listen of Miles Ahead. He engineers WBGO’s live in-studio performances and off site events, produces on-air spots and long form programming, and coordinates the daily log of promotional and underwriting announcements. His audio production, writing, and voice-over work have earned two New Jersey Broadcasters Association awards. Corey is a graduate of Rutgers University’s Jazz History and Research M.A. program.
