Vocalist Al Jarreau begins this edition of The Blues which airs on Saturday night, February 18th at 11pm. I played his music for years on my jazz shows. The first set also includes the legendary voices of Ray Charles, Etta James, and Aretha Franklin. The second set features Lurrie Bell, Jimmy Witherspoon doing the King Records song, Good Rockin' Tonight, and ends with Gov't Mule and k.d. lang. And ending the show, are songs by Abbey Lincoln, Larry Kinley, and Harry Connick, Jr.
