Release date: July 2005
Mr. A-Z is the second studio album by American singer-songwriter Jason Mraz, released on July 26, 2005. It is the studio follow-up to his first studio album Waiting for My Rocket to Come, released in 2002. Even with mixed reviews, it was a moderate commercial success and debuted at #5 on Billboard's Top 200 albums chart. It was recognized for mixing many different genres of music together.
It was nominated by the Recording Academy, for Best engineered album, and producer Steve Lillywhite, who previously worked with U2, Dave Matthews Band and The Rolling Stones, won for Producer of the Year for his work on Mr. A–Z.
The name, "Mr. A-Z" is an obvious pun to his name, Jason "Mraz".
An opera solo performed by Mraz himself can be found on the track "Mr. Curiosity". In March 2010 this song charted in Germany after it had been performed by Lena Meyer-Landrut in the talent show contest Unser Star für Oslo (Our Star for Oslo), reaching a peak position of #44.
