August 31, 2018 "His musical legacy . His Joy. He kept me afloat in the darkest of days . I had the privilege of seeing him perform live several times , and he signed an autograph for me. He inspired me to keep on and to reinforce a message in the song "Letter Perfect", live the golden rule . I love this man." - Bill Depew (Port Charlotte, FL)
August 26, 2018 "The album "Look to the Rainbow" has been my go-to music for 40+ yrs.
I fell in love with the music and the singer and went to many of his concerts here in Boston: one on Boston Common (outside, no covering) when a thunder storm arose-we stayed, became drenched in rain,well worth it.
The last time I saw Mr Jarreau was at opening night for a club at Patriot Place-the venue was intimate and wonderful.
He is forever in my heart.
