1988 Al Jarreau – Heart’s Horizon

Heart’s Horizon was the 1oth studio album by Al Jarreau, released in 1988. The album reached nr 1 in the jazz charts,  #75 in the US chart and  #10 in the R&B charts.

Alwin Lopez “Al” Jarreau (March 12, 1940 – February 12, 2017) was an American singer and musician. He received a total of seven Grammy Awards and was nominated for over a dozen more.

He also sang the theme song of the late-1980s television series Moonlighting, and was among the performers on the 1985 charity song “We Are the World.”
