Al Jarreau
"We Got By"

Every huge career has to start somewhere.

For Mr. Jarreau, it was with this LP.
It's interesting, knowing him also from his mature work, to hear him in a youthful, funky spirit in these songs.
Jarreau's ability to articulate even in mid-word is enviable, even if it does lead to strange-looking techniques. But it's jazz. Who cares?
