Jarreau had been sick, Variety reports, canceling all of his upcoming tour dates recently.

Jarreau was the distinctive voice behind such hits as "We're in This Love Together" (1981), "Mornin'" (1983) and the theme from the '80s TV series "Moonlighting" (1987), starring Bruce Willis and Cybill Shepherd.
