Al Jarreau, I will miss your smooth, silky sweet voice. I will miss your beautiful smile and your soulful way of digging down into a song.
I will miss how you changed with the times and kept your vocal chops relevant. I will miss your ability to put some bounce in our steps or calm us down and mellow us out. Your way of giving us a few moments when listening made us feel a bit hopeful for our day, our world.
"I hope you don't mind that I put down in words how wonderful life is while you are in my world...," because even though you are gone from it, your voice is still here with us.
And, that continues to give me hope. Thanks for the music, Mr. Jarreau.
Namaste' Till Next Time,
