Breakin' Away is a great follow-up of Soul crooner Al Jarreau to his previous album This Time. The album was released on in 1981 andbecame the standard bearer of the L.A. Pop and R&B sound. The album was certified Platinum by the RIAA.

Breakin' Away assumes its own identity with brilliant results. "Closer To Your Love" comes off as a tougher, more confident version of the songs from the previous album. "Easy" with its gorgeous and subtle Latin flourishes has Jarreau's purposeful delivery coming off oddly poignant in its joy and beauty. The hit "We're in This Love Together"  is on the album, just as the bittersweet "My Old Friend".  Jarreau brings new life to "Teach Me Tonight" and it has a sweeping, dreamy arrangement. But the album of course contains the biggest hit of all, "Roof Garden", with Al's inimitable vocal delivery.

The album was created with an amazing producer/artist chemistry, and top-level players like George Duke, David Foster, Dean Parks, and Steve Gadd can be heard on this record.
