Seven-time Grammy Award-winning jazz singer Alwin “Al” Lopez Jarreau (simply known as Al Jarreau) has one of the most treasured and phenomenal voices around. His legendary vocals will fill the atmosphere this coming weekend inside Cincinnati’s prestigious and newly renovated Taft Theater – a venue known for hosting a variety of historic performances from entertainment icons near and far.
For nearly four decades, Al Jarreau has expanded his repertoire with jazz improv, eclectic percussion arrangements and soul-laden funk experimentation all contributing to his already lengthy list of contributions to what we know as American music history. He continues to tour extensively across the globe and will hit the stage this weekend with the George Duke Trio of musicians right beside him.
