Al Jarreau: Les Double Six, Les Double Six

By Published: June 8, 2013
"Double Six—when I was in college in my first year, I formed a singing group patterned along the lines of Lambert, Hendricks & Ross—and Double Six.

"Double Six changed my life; I listened to them instead of going to class—I think they almost sent me home!

"Very important music to me, I became friends with [pianist/composer] Michel Legrand

—his sister sang in the group then, and Mimi Perrin—thank you Mimi! we'll all see you soon.

"So Double Six (EMI Columbia, 1962)—very important, lots of important people—but a special place for them."
