​There's lots of diversity in this week's just announced shows, with offerings from The Black Lips, Danzig, Keith Urban and KUPD's U-Fest. None of those artists, however, have won a Grammy in three -- count 'em, three -- different categories. Al Jarreau has. Hell, he joins Michael Jackson as the only other person to accomplish such a feat. You know you're in rarefied air when The King of Pop is your sole company.

No song better defines Jarreau's long and multifaceted career than his 1983 hit "Trouble In Paradise." While not his most famous song, "Trouble In Paradise" best sums up how Jarreau's music has appeal across the Jazz, Pop and R&B charts. Oh, I almost forgot -- the man has won Grammys in four consecutive decades starting in the 1970s.

Joining the ever talented Jarreau with just announced shows of their own are Pat Benatar, Blues Traveler, Josh Groban and Yanni.
