Falcone's Crossroads

Where This Meets That

Tuesday Tunage – Hal Singer

“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.

Hal Singer - Paris Soul FoodSaxophonist 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”.

Enjoy!
