Al Jarreau Mend Complete
January 14, 2011 at 11:17 AM (PT)
AL JARREAU, the award-winning and highly respected jazz singer, is on the mend, but still touring and recording. JARREAU, who recently turned seventy, was hospitalized while on tour in FRANCE last year.
He said while he was sick and did require hospitalization, the incident was blown way out of proportion. JARREAU said he suffered with problems brought on when some heart cells were misfiring, which made his heart race and caused a shortness of breath. He said he was treated and may have avoided some other, more serious problems had it not been discovered and treated early. He has made some lifestyle adjustments and now feels great.
He has a new album, “DOUBLE FACE,” which is scheduled to be released later this year.
