Al Jarreau: Les Double Six, Les Double Six

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 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.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
