Al Jarreau, a seven-time Grammy Award winner, he is the only vocalist in history to win in three separate categories: Jazz, Pop, and R&B.
This album, "Breakin' Away", reached number 1 in US Billboard chart for Jazz and R&B at the same time.
Released in 1981, Breakin' Away is not only a great follow-up to 'This Time', it all but perfected the effort. With an amazing batch of songs, producer/artist chemistry, and top-level players, Breakin' Away became the standard bearer of the L.A. pop and R&B sound. "Closer to Your Love" comes off as a tougher, more confident version of the songs from the previous album. However, in short order, Breakin' Away assumes its own identity with brilliant results. Everything works so well here that the hit, the pleasing "We're in This Love Together," comes off as the weak link. "Easy," with its gorgeous and subtle Latin flourishes, has Jarreau's purposeful delivery coming off oddly poignant in its joy and beauty. The bittersweet "My Old Friend" has him giving a charming and understated reading with gorgeous synth signatures that speak volumes. Most of Breakin' Away has Jarreau in great spirits and giving one great performance after another, like the powerful and melody-rich title song. Like his best albums, this gives Jarreau plenty of room to exercise his chops. He struts through the funky and elegant "Roof Garden," and on the impressive "(Round, Round, Round) Blue Rondo a la Turk" he offers great scats and whimsical lyrics. For the final track, Jarreau brings new life to "Teach Me Tonight" and it has a sweeping, dreamy arrangement. Produced by Jay Graydon, Breakin' Away is a great album and informed a lot of Jarreau's subsequent efforts.

This album is an excellent example of how good recording quality can be achieved by using only two microphones (one stereo mic) recorded direct-to-two tracks tape. It was recorded by David Manley, the founder of hifi manufacturer VTL (and Manley Labs).
Although two-microphone may not be able to achieve thimbre details of each and all instruments recorded as compared to "close miking" technique, but the most important benefit is the correctness of spatial information, so ideally the listener will be able to "re-create" the soundstage as what it was in the recording room.
I would like to recommend this album for people who appreciate natural sound quality, especially for those using "fast dipole speakers" (e.g.: electrostatics or other planars)

Albert began his career singing and playing guitar for a number of bands. In 1973, at a time when many Brazilian artists were using anglicised names in attempts to break into the U.S. market, he released his first album, which featured "Feelings", the self-penned song that would eventually bring him worldwide success. The international release of "Feelings" sold over one million copies in the United States alone, and reached #6 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in 1975, and #2 on Billboard's Adult Contemporary chart. It was awarded a gold disc by the R.I.A.A. on 13 November 1975

Bobby Caldwell was signed to Miami label TK Records, home to many different kinds of musical acts. For this very hot label, Bobby recorded his double platinum-attaining self-titled solo album, scoring hits with the singles "What You Won't Do for Love", "My Flame" and, in Britain, "Down for the Third Time."
Reaching the top ten on both the pop (#9) and R&B (#6) charts, the song proved to be a success, though a bit of a surprise one due both to the haste with which it was written and the fact that Caldwell assumed "My Flame", the LP's second track ("What You Won't Do for Love" is the sixth), would wind up as the standout single.
