Charles Aznavour and Jerry González, RIP -- October 1, 2018

We lost two great men of music on the same day. French singer, songwriter and activist Charles Aznavour and trumpeter and band leader Jerry González are both gone. I've been hearing about Aznavour all my life, although his work rarely showed up on the radio in San Francisco. He wrote songs for Edith Piaf. He did much to help people in Armenia and to try to persuade people to remember the genocide. Jerry González worked with many great Latin musicians and led the Fort Apache band.
