Song of the Day dedicates this post to Joe Muranyi.  He passed away on April 20 at the age of  84.  Joe was a jazz player, who specialized in the clarinet and was also a vocalist.  His career was highlighted by a stint (1967-71) with the Louis Armstrong All-Stars, where he played clarinet.  He was also a producer, a critic and created liner notes for many albums.  The attached song is from 2008.

About John

I enjoy travel, sports, music and anything else that jumps up at me for the moment, which is why I blog. There will be lots of music and travel posts and a smattering of sports and humour. I enjoy promoting Canada and am unabashedly a proud Canuck.
