Musicians and friends of clarinetist Joe Darensbourg paid tribute to him Sunday at the Limelight Club in Saugus with 12 hours of the music Darensbourg played and loved best: Dixieland. Darensbourg, 79, of Woodland Hills, died May 24 of cardiac arrest at Valley Hospital Medical Center in Van Nuys, where he had been recovering from a stroke. He began his career playing on Mississippi riverboats and in medicine shows in the 1920s.
