Early life

Kane was the oldest of three children in his family born to Jewish parents.[1][3] His father was Albert Kane and his mother was Hulda (Ascheim) Kane.[1][3] At the time he grew up he lived at Manhattan's Upper West Side in New York City.[1][3] He had brother called Albert and a sister called Ann. [2]

Kane's grandfather on his mother's side was a wholesaler of woolens while his other grandfather was a composer.[2][3] He in turn followed his father's father's steps playing musical instruments. As a young boy he learned to play the mandolin as well as the violin and banjo.[3]
