The Walkaway Bar...
3 September 2014 | by frnelson-386-86309See all my reviews

Love the Cannon series in the early 1970s, starring the late, great William Conrad!

This was a great episode in the life and times of Frank Cannon, private investigator. "A Flight of the Hawks"

Also starred a very young, Martin Sheen.

Question: Does anyone know the name of the saxophone instrumental music that was playing in the background while Cannon was in the "Walk Away Bar" questioning a few people, including a man know as the "colonel"? What is the name of that saxophone instrumental piece?

If you know please send reply to my email: frnelson@msn.com

Thanks
