Isaac Hayes revolutionized soul music, transforming the three-minute single into the orchestrated album with extended cuts. Hayes started out as a pianist and staff writer for Stax Records, and with David Porter wrote some of the biggest hits of the 1960’s, including “Soul Man” and “Hold On! I’m Comin’” for Sam & Dave. Hayes wrote the soundtrack for 1971’s Shaft. The album became Hayes’s fourth consecutive platinum LP and the “Theme from Shaft” earned him an Academy Award for Best Original Song.
Hayes’ musical accomplishments, which laid the groundwork for disco and rap, established him as one of the most influential artists of the 20th century.
