A celebration of life has been planned for Asa Albert Jolson, former owner of Al Jolson Enterprises and Masterlink Studio, who passed away March 4 in Nashville, Tenn., after a two month bout with pneumonia. He was 67.
The celebration of life is planned in Nashville for April 7 from 5:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. at the old Masterlink Studio Tracking Room 114 17th Ave South.
Known to family and friends as “Jolie,” he moved to Nashville in the 1980s, where he studied sound engineering at Belmont University.
Jolson created Al Jolson Enterprises and shortly thereafter opened a recording studio and music publishing business. In 1988, he purchased Masterlink Studio on Nashville’s Music Row.
Jolson expanded his recording business duplicating audio cassettes and later compact discs. After he retired, he sold his company in 2012.
He was the son of the late Al Jolson & Erle Galbraith Jolson Krasna. Mr. Jolson is survived by a daughter, Katharine; one granddaughter, two sisters & one brother. He was laid to rest at Forest Lawn in Hollywood.
