Found this photo from my touring years with Al Jarreau circa 1986!! You may recognize some of these incredible musicians… Neil Larson, Felicia Collins (Letterman show), Doc Gibbs (Emeril), Patches Stewart and Al himself, lookin’ sharp. I believe we were at The Montreux Jazz Festival. Felicia and I are having a “hair off”… seeing who can get their hair higher… haha!!

Just came across this photo from recording my first album! We invited Chaka Khan, Lisa Fisher (from The Rolling Stones and the movie 20 Feet From Stardom), Bonnie Raitt and my old back-up singer and friend, Adie Grey! Robert Kraft was producing 3 songs on the album, and this one didn’t actually make it on… but what a line-up!! The song was called What Do The Other Girls Do? Bonnie Raitt asked me if she could record this for her album, but I wanted to save it for my album… oops!! Ah yes… these were the big hair days.
