Tom Canning


Tom Canning. You know him best for his excellent writing, arranging and for his amazing keyboard touches on most of Al Jarreau’s music. But the native New Yorker’s music career started well before Al, when he performed and recorded with John Klemmer, Freddie King, T-Bone Burnett and others. But as we all know, it was an unsigned Al Jarreau who hired Canning as his music director in 1974 and the rest is history. You know the tracks, Roof Garden, Breakin’ Away, Never Givin’ Up - all containing Canning’s masterful arranging and performing. Inside MusiCast is pleased to welcome Tom Canning.
