Leon Redbone

I recently had the privilege of attending a concert by the great Leon Redbone.  Mr. Redbone is a musician and singer specializing in early 20th century music, including jazz, blues and vaudeville.  He pIayed many times on the Tonight Show with Johnny Carson, and sang the theme song to the TV show Mr. Belvedere. I've long been a fan, and his wonderful, authentic sound was a true pleasure to hear live.  Additionally, he's completely hilarious. Please enjoy the sample of his music I've included below (there are many more of his clips on YouTube), and let's spread the Leon Redbone love!
