Isaac Hayes departs the planet

Aug 10, 2008 Isaac Hayes departs the planet

Isaac Hayes conducting “Theme from Shaft.”

Isaac Hayes’s voice was commanding and well-suited to the theme from Shaft. I remember when the film’s soundtrack was released in 1971, but only remember the title theme. Two decades later I saw the film itself, which hardly measured up to Hayes’s theme song.

On August 10, Isaac Hayes departed the planet. As much as I prefer to pay tribute to people before they leave the planet, I am behind on doing so. Thanks, Isaac Hayes, for you. Jon Katz.
