Hal Singer / Jef Gilson
Soul of Africa

"Reissue of the sought after birth act of the Afro-Parisian jazz scene that fascinated so many musicians and music fans throughout the 70s and 80s. Comes in a heavyweight tip-on sleeve.

"Considered as one of the most important Afro-Parisian jazz records of the seventies, Soul of Africa sees Texas tenor sax giant Hal Singer team up with French pianist Jel Gilson, and his Afrocentric, big jazz band. Originally released in 1974 on legendary French imprint French Le Chant Du Monde, and re-issued in 2008 on Dutch imprint Kindred Spirits, Super-Sonic Jazz Records provides yet another opportunity to get ahold of this driving, testament to spiritual, ethno-jazz.

"Full of rhythmic modal jazz, Soul of Africa plays off the talents of Singer and Gilson with great panache, all the while supported by the sublime percussive talents of Gilson's finely directed band. During the 60s, Gilson was equal to the likes of Miles Davis, and was responsible for unearthing the talent Henri Texier, one of jazz's unrivaled, brilliant bass players. His music spanned various modes of jazz, and was recognised primarily for his Malagasy works, inspired by his trips to Madagascar. Hal "Cornbread" Singer who, in his long career, played alongside Duke Ellington, Roy Eldridge, Billie Holiday and far more, and was a Mercury Records' legend whose work with rhythm and blues, and jazz is unparalleled." - Super Sonic Jazz
