Sir Howard Morrison passed away today. His work with the Howard Morrison quartet in the 1950s and 60s was groundbreaking, highly entertaining and sometimes bloody funny.
Songs from The Howard Morrsion Quartet have featured in a number of previous Counting the Beat episodes:
'George The Wilder Colonial Boy' is in True Crime Stories (mp3)
'My Old Man's An All Black' is in Rugby Was The Winner On The Day
'Mori the Hori ' is in What's On The Governor General's Ipod
'The Battle of The Waikato is on I've Been Everywhere Man (Round Hamilton)
And here he is performing with a reunited Quartet only a month ago.
