RIP Marty Napoleon

I'm indebted to Maurice Summerfield for drawing my attention to the passing of Marty Napoleon. Marty was an on/off long term member of the Louis Armstrong All Stars and part of that memorable night club scene in The Glenn Miller Story when Louis and co played Basin Street Blues. As well as Louis, Marty played with many legends including Krupa, Charlie Barnet, Red Allen and Ruby Braff.
Marty Napoleon died on April 27 age 93.
