Al Jarreau: Mornin’

AlJarreau-Album-Jarreau

Mornin’ Mr. Radio
Mornin’ little Cheerios
Mornin’ sister Oriole
Did I tell you everything is fine…
In my mind

Mornin’ Mr. Shoe Shine Man
Shine ’em bright in white and tan
My baby said she loves me and
Need I tell you that
everything here is just fine
In my mind

‘Scuse me if I sing
My heart has found its wings
Searchin’ high and low
And now at last I know

Mornin’ Mr. Golden Gate
I should walk but I can’t wait
I can’t wait to set it straight
I was shakin’ but now I am
makin’ it fine
Here in my mind

My heart will soar
With love that’s rare and real
My smiling face will feel every cloud
Then higher still
Beyond the blue until
I know I can
Like any man
Reach out my hand
And touch the face of GOD

‘Scuse me if I sing
My heart has found its wings
Searchin’ high and low
And now at last I know

Mornin’ Mr. Radio
Mornin’ little Cheerios
Mornin’ sister Oriole
Did I tell you everything is fine…
Wooo in my mind

So, won’t you get up Oriole
So, won’t you get up Cheerios
Wake up Mr. Radio
….it’s fine
Here in my mind

Singin’ about mornin’ little radio
Mornin’ little Cheerios
Wake up Mr. Radio
Need I tell you everything
right here is just doing fine

Having broken through into the pop Top Ten albums with producer Jay Graydon and Breakin’ Away, Jarreau had found his commercial groove, and it was potent enough to sustain him at least through the eponymously titled follow-up album. Again, strong, often self-co-composed material and catchy, radio-friendly arrangements with lots of synthesizers would be the strong suit of this album, front-loaded by two large-scale R&B hits, the cheery “Mornin'” and footstomping “Boogie Down,” that would be part of his concert repertoire forever more (“Save Me” is also in their league). The backing comes from a coterie of L.A. pros who kick in more energy than what one would normally expect; it must be the material that fired ’em up. In other words, this is a really good R&B album, almost a great one, with the one caveat being that Jarreau’s unique vocal abilities aren’t remotely challenged; this could have been conceivably cut by almost any skilled R&B singer. ~ Richard S.
