Albert Raisner passed away suddenly in Paris on Saturday the 1st of January, at the age of 88.
The Harmonica planet is mourning.
Musician, he travelled all over the world with his famous trio, he was during several years producer and presenter of a famous TV show
" Age tendre et Têtes de bois ", he was also writer. He has worked tirelessly for nearly 60 years to bring the harmonica to the heights. This very remarkable man is now a legend.
All my harmonica friends are joining me to offer our very sincere condolences to his two sons, Remy and Richard.
I have been knowing Albert since 1946. I'll tell you more about him in a very near future.
