A rep for Al Jarreau tells TMZ he was diagnosed with pneumonia before the concert, saying, "Mr. Jarreau believes that his illness and fatigue resulted from a very busy week on tour, which included 4 concerts in Austria. He will spend a short time recovering at home before resuming his normal work schedule.

Legendary singer Al Jarreau canceled a concert this evening in Escondido, CA ... TMZ has learned. 

Jarreau was scheduled to perform at The Centre at Lexus Escondido, but the concert hall said Jarreau would not be performing because he was ill. A source close to the situation told TMZ he was taken to the hospital, but the concert hall would not confirm.

The entire concert was not canceled -- George Duke, who is also on the bill, will still perform.

Jarreau, who is 72, has won 6 Grammys ... including one as recent as 2007... and nominated for 12 more. 

Calls to Jarreau's rep were not returned.

I really hope this is nothing serious for him. He oozes class. He came to our small-town library a few years ago and did a special reading of one of his books to our kids. He was so kind and gracous and answered all the kids questions no matter how silly. We were all so impressed by him.

Does anyone at TMZ know how to spell or put together a sentence? Do you not have an editor? You are supposed to be professionals. Please use spell check.
