Al Jarreau Tribute Album Debuts Today

"We're In This Love Together/Celebrating Al Jarreau - Now Available Worldwide

CHICAGO - July 12, 2019 - PRLog -- The highly anticipated tribute album, "We're In This Love Together / Celebrating Al Jarreau from Chris Walker makes it worldwide debut today.

Chris Walker, who was Jarreau's bassist and featured vocalist for over 20 years, co-produced the album with Larry Williams, who was Jarreau's keyboardist.

Walker launched a Kickstarter campaign last May and fans, friends and colleagues of Jarreau and Walker funded the highly anticipated project.

The album features a stellar line-up of artists who came together to honor the seven-time Grammy winner  from the jazz, R&B and gospel worlds including Regina Belle, Dave Koz, Will Downing, Gerald Albright, Rick Braun, Kirk Whalum, Arturo Sandoval and David Foster among others.

The album is reminiscent of Jarreau's own tribute album to his long-time friend, George Duke.

Walker and Williams were challenged to narrow down the album to 14 cover tracks from Jarreau's vast repertoire, as well as two new tracks (Phenomenon [an early fan favorite] and Jarreau) honoring Jarreau, composed and arranged by Walker.

Fan favorites include Roof Garden, Breakin' Away, Spain, Mornin' and the title track, "We're In This Love Together," a duet with Grammy Award winner, Regina Belle.

Additionally, Walker struggled with including the opening track, which is a message from Jarreau, days before his passing.

"It is a pleasure to produce this project with my dear friend, Chris Walker, the heir apparent to Al and to move this music forward, as we believe Al would have wanted," said Larry Williams.

The album marks Walker's return as a solo artist, in his own right.  The album was pre-released in South Africa last week, in anticipation of Walker's sold-out performance in Pretoria at the Sun Arena, July 7th, honoring the late radio personality, Eddie Zondi, of Metro FM Radio.

"We're In This Love Together/Celebrating Al Jarreau" is available now at http://theconnextion.com/chriswalker, Amazon Music, and streaming on Apple (iTunes) Music, and Spotify.

Jul 22, 2019

NICHOLASVILLE, Ky. — From President Donald Trump's putting advice to playing partner Kelly Kraft's two late bogeys, Jim Herman got the help he needed to win the Barbasol Championship on Sunday for his second PGA Tour title. He executed when he had to, too. "Really proud of how I can step up on that 18th tee when everything's on the line and hit the fairway and hit the green and get out of there," Herman said. Trump's regular golf partner while working as an assistant professional at Trump National Bedminster in New Jersey, Herman changed to a conventional putting grip...

Hotels face battle over whether to help US house migrants

Jul 22, 2019

DETROIT — There's a new target in the clash over immigration: hotels. Advocacy groups and unions are pressuring Marriott, MGM and others not to house migrants who have been arrested by Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers. The U.S. government has occasionally detained migrants in hotels for decades and says it might have to split up families if hotels don't help. It's the latest example of a private industry caught in the political fray of an overtaxed immigration system. American and United Airlines said last year they didn't want to fly migrant children separated from their parents. Greyhound told authorities to...

Trump's regular golf partner while working as an assistant professional at Trump National Bedminster in New Jersey, Herman changed to a conventional putting grip and clubhead at the president's suggestion following a recent round. "He gave me a good talking to and told me to use a different style if it's not working," Herman said Friday after shooting his second straight 65 to top the leaderboard. "Some great advice,...
