    Things are looking better for ailing jazz singer Al Jarreau, 70. A helicopter ferried the Grammy-award vocalist from a hospital in the Alps to one in the French port of Marseille after he suffered breathing problems in the mountains that forced him to cancel several concerts, hospital authorities said Saturday. He had been in critical condition.

    Jarreau was conscious, in stable condition and in the cardiology unit of La Timone hospital in Marseille, the Marseille Hospital Authority said. He was expected to remain there for about a week for tests. Jarreau's website also noted that the singer had asked to be taken to the hospital Friday after he had trouble adjusting to the Alpine mountain altitude. He had experienced breathing problems and was for a time in intensive care.

    Fatigue as well as the altitude may have played a role in Jarreau's health problems. The singer is on a lengthy overseas tour to Europe and Japan.
