A Tribute to MICKEY CORREA, the great Goan Jazzman

MICKEY CORREIA, the great Goan jazzman, would have been 98 years old today – 26th Sept 2011 – but breathed his last on 22nd Sept . The legendary musician from Moira in North Goa (India), regaled audiences in Karachi, Mumbai and elsewhere. The Mombasa-born superb reedman played alongside music greats like Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington, Dave Brubeck and others. His longest innings lasted from 1930 to 1960 as Taj Mahal Hotel’s band leader in residence in Mumbai. The video clip is from Joel D’Souza’s personal video-lib, recorded at the residence of Patricia, Mickey’s daughter, at Dona Paula, Goa, sometime in 2005. Popular cartoonist Alexyz too joined in the conversation. Check at goamovie click here
