PRA Archive #: 

This week on From the Vault, we celebrate we celebrate the life of Al Jarreau, who had a connection with Pacifica beginning in 1968 that held strong until his death on February 12, 2017. There is no one better to help weave Jarreau's early beginnings than Pacifica host Julio Martinez - musician, writer and host of KPFK's Arts in Review, a program centered around theater, music, cabaret and dance. Martinez was Jarreau's musical partner in the early years, from 1967 to 1975.

Woven into the rich narrative by Martinez, we'll hear rare live performances of Love Not NowA Day in the LifeBetter than AnythingLovely Lady Light UpSomething to Lose, and Wonder Well.
