Record release: Hal Singer Jazz Quartet – Soweto to Harlem




Reissue by Cinedelic Records of this rare album from the original tape masters on vinyl internationally for the very first time. The reissue follows Singer’s passing at age 100 in August 2020, as we contemplate and celebrate his extraordinary contribution to jazz in the United States and beyond.

Originally released in 1976 and available only in South Africa, “Soweto to Harlem” captures a laid-back, unabashed and nostalgic rhythm and blues of Hal Singer’s quartet that would hardly have been born for a different market.

Hal Singer – Tenor Sax
Alain Jean-Marie – Piano
August “Gus” Nemeth – Bass
Oliver Johnson – Drums

Lato A: Soweto To Harlem 8:30 / Blues After Six 9:10
Lato B: The Gospel 5:45 / Always Blues 7:12 / Deacon Johnson 8:10
