    Um, Wikipedia lists him being from Milwaukee and getting his start in Sausilito, CA.

    And I'm pretty sure Prince didn't own 1st Ave (not that he couldn't have of course).

    I was a little off in the nature of his Minneapolis connection, but it does appear strong, played a big part of making him the musician he became.

    From the Strib.

    Al Jarreau grew up in Milwaukee and earned his big break in California, but the seven-time Grammy-winning jazz singer pointed to his time in Minneapolis as a pivotal step in his career. That five-decade legacy ended Sunday when he died at a hospital in Los Angeles. He was 76.

    “I had kind of a lusty one-nighter with Minneapolis,” Jarreau laughingly described it in an interview last year.

    ...He and his manager at the time, Shelly Jacobs, returned to Jacobs’ hometown of Minneapolis in 1969, and for the next year Jarreau said he enjoyed a great creative spurt.

    “What we were doing was a little against the grain, but the [Minneapolis] audience was open to it,” he remembered, pointing to his performances at the newly opened nightclub the Depot, now First Avenue. “It was a young, hip audience that was open to new sounds. The entire city at the time really had it going on.”

    Original Depot/First Ave owner Allan Fingerhut remembered Jarreau was “trying to make up his mind” about becoming a singer or a professional baseball player when he performed at the club. “I think we played a significant role in launching his career, because the audiences really dug him,” Fingerhut said.

    Jarreau said he wrote his first songs in Minneapolis, and he put together a band that included future “A Prairie Home Companion” bandleader Rich Dworsky — then still a senior in high school — along with Bobby Schnitzer, Dik Hedlund and Bruce Kurnow. They followed Jarreau out to California in 1971, where he eventually signed with Warner Bros. Records.

    In other news, the Washington Generals still live.

    Give Steele & Unger a listen. It's what happens when the fight is even.
