Former 650 singer Hale Baskin now a Dallas Cowboy cheerleader or jazz singer with a residency at The Mitchell


I saw her at Cogswell Plaza nooner brown bag dealio it must have been 2006, maybe with Akira Tana in her band and maybe Jim Harrington still of the Weekly wrote her up and now thru the magic of the internet I find that Hale Baskin of Redwood City is in Texas, Dallas and plays every Friday night thru June with The Southpaw Preachers big band at The Mitchell on Main.  She is not really a cheerleader as far as I know although I did recently tell someone leaving for a business trip to Dallas to take an art tour of the stadium.

She’s feeling good. No doubt.

(Mitch Woods, who I’ve been stalking, is playing Nicks of Pacifica, I’ve never been. Fil Lorenz, big band leader, also is playing there, soon enough. Hale sang with Fil, or does. Hale has a video of Nina Simone song, “Feeling Good” — meanwhile I am off to see Wil Blades on organ in San Jose Cafe Stritch tonite, but also there’s a Warriors game on tv, versus the Philadelphia 76ers. Also, Andrew Gilbert has a piece in the Merc about Scott Amedola 50th birthday show Monday at Freight and Salvage in Berkeley with Jeff Parker and Nels Cline and Jenny Scheimman, plus it lists his 5 most influential cds which include Fela Kuti, Geri Allen, Coltrane with Elvin Jones, early Frisell with a drummer I never heard of and one more TK. And I’m feeling good…)
