Al Jarreau 'Love Songs'
On 'The Tavis Smiley Show,' Grammy Award-winning jazz maven Al Jarreau talks about his latest album release.
"It's a very deliberate pace, I'm talking about my heart every time I say something ... it's what I feel, and I don't take that lightly. So it takes me a while to write a song."
Jarreau says love songs take a very prominent place in his body of work: "I think it's probably close to 98 to 99 percent of songs written, where the theme is love."
"Love Songs" started out as a Valentines project for Jarreau seven years ago. The album is a collection of some of his classics, along with covers of other favorites -- like Elton John's "Your Song."
