2012 live release from the Jazz vocalist. Recorded in April, 2011, in the Netherlands with the Metropole Orchestra, conducted by Vince Mendoza.

After nearly five decades of recording and performing, at an age when many artists are coasting if not retiring altogether, Jarreau continues to take his music to new and different places, literally and figuratively.


The most recent chapter in this journey is Al Jarreau and the Metropole Orkest — Live, a collection of the best performances from a two-night engagement at the Theater aan de Parade, located in Den Bosch, Netherlands.


The recording finds Jarreau onstage with a 53-piece orchestra from northern Europe whose collective expertise encompasses the best elements of classical music, American jazz and all the nuanced places in between. Al Jarreau and the Metropole Orkest — Live is set for release on Concord Records on June 19, 2012.
