Al Jarreau ’62 part of White House jazz gala
Al Jarreau ’62 was among a host of prominent jazz musicians to perform recently at the International Jazz Day All-Star Global Concert on the South Lawn of the White House.
The April 29 gala jazz concert was just the third such event at the White House. The others were under Jimmy Carter in 1978 and Bill Clinton in 1993. In his opening remarks, President Obama described jazz as “driven by an unmistakably American spirit.”
