Leon Redbone

Born August 26, 1949[1]
Nicosia, Cyprus
Died May 30, 2019 (aged 69)
Bucks County, Pennsylvania, U.S.

Leon Redbone (born Dickran Gobalian,[2][3] August 26, 1949 – May 30, 2019) was a singer-songwriter, guitarist, and actor specializing in jazz, blues, and Tin Pan Alley classics. Recognized by his Panama hat, dark sunglasses, and black tie, Redbone was born in Cyprus of Armenian ancestry and first appeared on stage in Toronto, Canada, in the early 1970s. He also appeared on film and television in acting and voice-over roles.

In concert Redbone often employed comedy and demonstrated his skill in guitar playing. Recurrent gags involved the influence of alcohol and claiming to have written works originating well before he was born – Redbone favored material from the Tin Pan Alley era, circa 1890 to 1910. He sang the theme to the 1980s television series Mr. Belvedere and released eighteen albums.

He appeared on SNL way back in the early days a few times. Didn't watch Belvedere so didn't know that, but saw his Budweiser Ad and more recently recognized his voice singing in the movie Elf. Enjoyed his style and class - the fact of his passing with little notice seems to fit with his "mystic"...... RIP
