"The Enemy of Jazz"! That's what we called Irving Kaufman, whose vocals blighted many an otherwise terrific jazz record. BUT there's always an exception: Check out "Rosy Cheeks" by "The Six Hottentots". Irving - suddenly! - is a TERRIFIC jazz singer! He's relaxed, casual, loosey-goosey with the bar lines - just great. WHAT were they passing around in the studio that caused this? I dunno. But here it is. -Brad Kay
