R&B legend Al Jarreau plays tunes from "Accentuate the Positive," his first jazz-oriented recording in 27 years, on The Saturday Early Show's Second Cup Cafe.
Jarreau is the only vocalist in history to net Grammy awards in three different categories - jazz, pop, and R&B.
Jarreau first made an impact with 1975's release "We Got By," garnering comparisons to the likes of Billy Eckstine and Johnny Mathis.
The 64-year-old performer tells Billboard magazine, "Music is the fountain of youth. The creative process rejuvenates me. I live to experience that vitality."
He adds that he recorded a straight-ahead jazz album because: "This is a thanks to the kind of music that made me the person I am today."
