Celebrated Romanian jazz musician dies

A Romanian doctor says celebrated jazz musician Johnny Raducanu, whose family had been making music in Romania for centuries, has died. He was 79.
Dr. Bogdan Oprita said Raducanu died of a heart attack at home Monday.
Bucharest National Theater director Ion Caramitru said Raducanu was beloved by Romanians for his gentle wit as much as his music.
Raducanu was born in a Roma, or Gypsy, family who had been musicians for 300 years. British journalist and musician Leonard Feather called Raducanu "Mr. Jazz of Romania."
