By gathering an impressive list of special guests that include bassists Marcus Miller and Stanley Clarke; saxophonists Gerald ... Read more in Amazon's Al Jarreau Store

5.0 out of 5 stars A good introduction to a master of vocalese November 6, 2007
Format:Audio CD
Like several other reviewers, my introduction to Al Jarreau came by way of purchasing this album, which I added to my record collection during my junior year in college. Listening to it again as I compose this review, I remember fine spring days when I would throw open the windows of my dorm room and crank up the opening number, "Thinkin' About It Too."

I'm glad to see that so many other listeners have the same fond reaction to this at turns energetic and mellow album as I do. What makes these reactions all the more interesting is the fact that this album -- his fourth for Warner/Reprise -- contains neither the huge, Grammy-winning jazz-pop hits he went on to make ("We're In This Love Together," "Theme from 'Moonlighting'," "Mornin'") nor my single favorite Jarreau song of all, the beautifully wistful title ballad of his first successful album, 1975's "We Got By." (Jarreau recorded an obscure album in the mid-1960s that was re-released in 1999.) What it does offer, though, is an excellent cross-section of Jarreau's wide variety of jazz/pop singing styles: uptempo and slow, scat, bebop, ballads and straight pop.

If you can only have one Al Jarreau album in your collection -- but why would you want to limit yourself so? -- this is the one to have for that reason. Those of you who know him only from his more recent hits ("Random Act of Love," "Just to Be Loved," "Accentuate the Positive") should add this album to your collection in order to discover how he has evolved and grown over the years while remaining true to his own style.

5.0 out of 5 stars "All Fly Home" by Al Jarreau January 27, 2008
By IMC
Format:Audio CD
"All Fly Home" by Al Jarreau, is a masterpiece to say the least. Al Jarreau is a master of song, story telling and passion. If you are interested in true interpretation, and an artisitic soul, check out "All Fly Home".

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Jarreau August 27, 2001
Format:Audio CD
This is the first Al Jarreau recording I ever bought way back in the late '70's. In my opinion it's also one of his very best. I'm listening to the CD for inspiration as I write this review. I never get tired of hearing lyrics like, "I wanna be good to you...I wanna bless your kachoo." "Fly" is a flat out swingin', rockin', waltz that'll take you breath away. I've listened to this album many, many times and it's never failed to satisfy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Coming Home Again. November 9, 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
One of my better decisions for 2009:
Rediscovering the magical sounds of Mr. Al Jarreau.
This CD takes me to a bubble bath in the middle of the day, walking outside in the misty rain, driving on the freeway during rush hour then suddenly taking the next exit to a country road with no traffic.
Its a sunrise with a soundtrack, a sunset with a with sexy horns playing softly in your ear. My favorite on this CD is no surprise, its "Im Home".
For the school-girl-silly-side of me, I especially enjoy "Im Thinking About it Too"- Pure.Sexy.Fun.
I'm glad I selected "continue to check out" for this
item.

5.0 out of 5 stars All Fly Home for the ages December 11, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Being introduced to jazz in 1980, Jarreau's music made it very easy to learn the art of listening to jazz. This is a superb choice for new jazz listeners due to Jarreau's easy blend of vocals and progressive jazz tracks. It will be a new found jewel for the veteran listeners who may have missed his early music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Incomparable! June 25, 2010
Format:Audio CD
Just picked this up and, like everything Al does and has ever done, I love it. Definitely has a 70's feel - which I also love. As far as I'm concerned, anything Al does is gold. The only thing about the cd that I don't like is that the sound quality is not stellar - his vocals get lost a little bix in the mixing (old technology). Otherwise, superb. Just saw Al in concert in Durham with George Duke trio. He still has the goods!

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy it again and again September 23, 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This All Fly Home is Al Jarreau at his best! I rediscovered it in my record collection a few weeks ago and I wanted to preserve this recording so I repurchased it as a CD. Other recommend Al Jarreau CD's are Glow, We Got By, and Casino Lights. All of them are 5 stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Early Al with a great rhythm section. August 28, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
...Check out Joe Correro, an unsung funkmeister with an original perspective on grooves. This stuff was ahead of its time. Al is spreading his wings in a way he would rarely do on later recordings. The band fits his him like a glove. Good funk, pop? but the integrity is there and it's not dumbed down.
