Al Jarreau: Tomorrow Today
Pity. He makes a rather unconvincing attempt at sounding funky on "In My Music" and then looks to cash in on the current Latin craze with the title track. Neither effort works. "God's Gift To The World," a duet with Vanessa Williams, will appeal only to all those Celine Dion fans out there who can't get their fill of vacuous "power ballads." The a cappella closer "Puddit (Put It in Your Pocket)," a la Bobby McFerrin, is technically impressive, yet fails to connect with the listener on an emotional level. And that's the problem with most of this CDtoo slick, too smooth, too familiar.
