By 1978, ​Parliament-Funkadelic had kicked into top gear, partly thanks to the contributions of the recently-passed Junie Morrison as keyboardist and musical director, while songs from Rick James, Chic and Earth, Wind & Fire also made '78 a strong year for R&B.

A singular talent on the guitar, Coryell was a pioneer of jazz-rock who also dabbled in psychedelic rock, unaccompanied acoustic music and straight-ahead bebop.

RIP Al Jarreau, 1940-2017

The Grammy-winning vocalist passed away this morning. His career spanned genres and decades, and yielded excellent albums like 'This Time' and 'Breakin Away.'

Gustavo Aparicio Ces Aparicio Como dije, este va a ser un muy mal año para la música. Al Jarreau, cantante de smooth jazz, soul y R6B. Su tema más conocido Moonlightning de la serie de los '80, Luz de luna (Moonlighting), la serie que catapultó a la fama a Bruce Willis. De los últimos en cultivar un agradable estilo jazz/soul/R&B antes que derivara en la basura pop/hip-hopera que es hoy, con esos sonidos, incluídas las voces, tan artificiales y repetidos hasta el hartazgo por todos y cada uno de los "artistas".
Niklas Hidenius I played a few Al Jarreau songs this morning 🙁 RIP
Dennis Solis Morales Sad, we've been losing great musical and movie artists here and there. RIP Al. Joseph
Felix Garcia Nogue Impresionantes álbumes a mediados de los 80 con incursiones electrónicas dentro de melodías Jazz like "High Crime"
Njabulo Ngcobo My heart is broken.... untimely passing of a "man with an orchestra in his mouth"...so sad😞😞😞
Jeff C. Suehiro One of the great singers of jazz! May Music follow You in Heaven..
Barbara Fergus Oh I remember Al Jarreau. RIP.
