Elliot Lawrence had recorded the name board to remain in our memories.

Today, I want to post co-starred musician with him.

In particular, I can not forget two musician who died at a young age.


This recorded in 1957 for the RCA Records.

Sadly, Kahn’s writing and playing genius would be short-lived. He died on Aug. 19, 1953 of a heart attack at age 29.
