Harold Joseph "Hal" Singer (born 8 October 1919), also known as Hal "Cornbread" Singer, is an American rhythm & blues and jazz bandleader and saxophonist.

Born in Tulsa, Oklahoma, Singer studied violin as a child but, as a teenager, switched to clarinet and then tenor saxophone, which became his instrument of choice. From the late 1930s he began playing in local bands, including Ernie Fields', before joining Jay McShann's orchestra in 1943 and then moving to New York….
