Rare album by tenor sax Hal Singer on cult french independant jazz label Futura. Blues And News features Art Taylor on drums, the great Siegfried Kessler on piano, flute and famous bass player Patrice Caratini. Includes some sumptous and deep compositions like on the modal Pour Stéphanie, on which Siegrief Kessler plays both piano and flute ! Another brilliant track is the great soul jazz Du Bois with funky drums and even some breakbeat (drums + percussions) part. But the main reason why this album is collected is porobably due to the deep bluesy jazz Malcom X. Definitely the highlight of this great overlooked Futura album. Check the long actual soundclip. Fragile sleeve is strong VG++ record is NM.
