Jazz Legend Al Jarreau Dead at 76
Just days after being hospitalized for exhaustion, the incomparable vocalist passed away in Los Angeles.
Here is one of his songs that I liked, “Boogie Down” from 1983.
R.I.P. and thank you for your music.

I get on these kicks of finding different versions of the same song. The most recent song that I have over 12 versions of is “Since I Fell For You” (1945).
“Since I Fell for You” is a jazz and pop standard. The blues ballad was composed by Buddy Johnson in 1945 and was first popularized by his sister, Ella Johnson, with Buddy Johnson and His Orchestra. The biggest hit version was recorded by Lenny Welch in 1963, reaching number four on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart. (from wikipedia.com)
Here is the version done by Lenny Welch.
Here are some of the other versions of the song that I have:
Does anyone else do this with their songs in their music library?
