AL JARREAU | LIVE IN LONDON-THE DELUXE EDITION CD
Friday Music announces yet another brilliant release from the Al Jarreau Remaster Series, his classic 1985 smash live recording Live In London/The Deluxe Edition. Unavailable on compact disc or LP for many years, this amazing recording now boasts four unreleased recordings for the first time on cd, as well as a very cool new interview with the artist included in the extensive liner notes. This historic concert was recorded in front of thousands at Wembley Arena in November of 1984, as Al Jarreau was celebrating three smash albums in a row, with most of the show leaning heavily on his Breaking Away, Jarreau (FRM 1131) and High Crime (FRM 1132) albums. The musicianship is in top form, with help from folks like Nathan East (Eric Clapton), Steve George and Richard Page (Mr. Mister) as well as the incredible production of Tommy LiPuma. This album truly has the tenacity and vibe of the real live concert setting, as Mr. Jarreau stretches out on classics like We're In This Love Together, Our Love, High Crime and a very hip solo version of the Paul Desmondclassic Take Five. Remastered impeccably from the original Warner Bros. tapes by Joe Reagoso, Live In London/The Deluxe Edition also includes all the original artwork elements from this smash release, which will make this one of the more exciting jazz and R&B events of 2010. Enjoy!
