Onetime Tarzana home of jazz legend Al Jarreau flips back on market


Al Jarreau’s onetime Tarzana home is back up for sale at $1.75 million. The late jazz artist owned the one-story house from 2002, when he bought it for $761,000, until last year, when it sold for $1.065 million.

Palms line the walkway to the 1966 home’s new wood-slat front door, and fresh sod fills the frontyard. Gone are the ’60s-’70s exterior vibe and flagstone accents.


The sleekly remodeled interiors of 3,148 square feet feature an open floor plan, five bedrooms and four bathrooms. A mid-room fireplace separates the living and family room areas.

A swimming pool and waterfall create focal points in the backyard. Views take in the surrounding mountains.

Jarreau, who died at 76 last year, was known as the “Acrobat of Scat” for his vocal improvisations. He won seven Grammys during his five-decade career in the jazz, pop and R&B categories.

Among his enduring hits are “We’re in This Love Together,” “Roof Garden” and “Mornin’.”
