I met him once when I was a chef. He was doing a benefit concert here in town and he had taken the people that ran the local chapter of his charity out for a brunch meeting. He was exceptionally nice. I was fortunate to draw the omelette station straw over the other sous chefs. So, I was directly beside his table for three hours making eggs to order.  I met a few celebrities over the years when I was cooking and he and Tim McGraw stand out as being the friendliest. McGraw was just a really soft spoken polite and gracious guy. Jarreau was just cool, he oozed charisma and was effervescent with a kind of contagious energy. He was one of the greats.
