Release Notes:
The Times called Ben Sidran the first existentialist jazz rapper. BLUE CAMUS,
the follow up to DONT CRY FOR NO HIPSTER, moves Ben Sidran further in that
direction where jazz meets poetry, philosophy and politics, combining ready
grooves with big ideas and a sense of humor. Many of the songs are direct
tributes to philosopher / writers of the 20th century: 'The King of Harlem' is
for Federico Garcia Lorca; 'Blue Camus' is for Albert Camus famous Stranger ,
and 'A Is For Alligator' is a tribute for George Orwell s 'Animal Farm'. BLUE
CAMUS is also a tribute to two great musical families, the Petersons (brothers
Billy and Ricky) and the Sidrans (father and son Ben and Leo), who have worked
and played together for many years and have contributed to the recordings of,
among others, Bob Dylan, Prince, Van Morrison, Dave Sanborn and Jorge Drexler.
BLUE CAMUS is a rare meeting of music, philosophy and family.
