Where This Meets That
“Tuesday Tunage” is a weekly spotlight for music I deem worthy of a spotlight. To make it worth all of our time, I’ll do my best to emphasize tunes you probably haven’t heard before that represent the art in all its glorious varieties.
After featuring a little new-school, white-Brit funk last week, I’m going with a little old-school number this week.
Saxophonist and jazz bandleader Hal “Cornbread” Singer was born in Oklahoma in 1919. Following his love of music, he moved to New York City by the mid-1940’s, and by the mid-1960’s had crossed the Atlantic to reside in France. Here, he recorded several albums, including 1969’s Paris Soul Food, which gives us our tunage for this week, a fun little toe-tapper called “Malcom X”.
