Al Jarreau: Les Double Six, Les Double Six

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.
