Jazz star Al Jarreau's recovery is "going well" following his recent health scare and he could be released from hospital as soon as this weekend (begs30Jul10), according to his doctor.
The 70-year-old Grammy winner had been receiving treatment at a hospital in the French Alps following his collapse last week (22Jul10), moments before his set at a music festival in Barcelonnette.
He was transferred to La Timone medical centre in Marseille on Saturday (24Jul10) after the altitude caused problems with his breathing, but his condition has been steadily improving.
His cardiologist, Dr. Jean-Louis Bonnet, claims "everything's going well" with his recovery and insists his "state of health is coming along quite normally".
Bonnet suggests that if Jarreau's health continues to improve, he might even be discharged in the next few days.
