The Four Freshmen, has passed away at the age of 84.
The Four Freshmen are part of what you might call the soundtrack of my life, as I grew up regularly listening to their recordings, which were part of my father's extensive music collection. My dad has a great memory of meeting the group when he was a teenager vacationing in Hawaii.
An additional obituary was published by the New York Times, and there's a video at Spinner.
