Name this singer, win a prize.

Another contest, y’all. Click here and listen to a Christmas song. The first person to correctly identify this singer – in the comments section here – will win a prize.

Here’s a hint: She had a big hit single in the early 1970s.

Only one guess per reader, please.

The prize you’re playing for is a factory-sealed copy of the 2003 CD “Borders of Disordely Time” by jazz poet Jayne Cortez.

Cortez is a national treasure. And this album includes music from Ron Carter, James “Blood” Ulmer, Bobby Bradford, Frank Lowe and T.K. Blue. Click here to hear one of the pieces... a tribute to Ella Fitzgerald.

UPDATE (12/23/08): We have a winner. RP correctly identified the singer as Denise LaSalle. The track is called “Santa’s Got the Blues.”

Click here to hear her 1971 gold record, “Trapped By a Thing Called Love.”

Hi there! {waves}

I just wanted to stop by and bring "Merry Christmas" greetings!

Isaiah 9:6 (NKJV)
For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given;
And the government will be upon His shoulder.
And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace."

Peace, blessings and DUNAMIS!

Hey UBM, What happened to the Tuesday 12-Inch Flashback?

I took a pause on that for the holidays.
