Born on February 8th 1890 in Syracuse, New York, Isidore Kaufman would grow up to have a prosperous career as a popular vocalist. Although he was not really considered a jazz singer he started appearing on the vaudeville circut billed as Irving Kaufman. Blessed with a voice that recorded especially well he sang on 78 RPM releases accompanied by some of the foremost jazz figures of the 1920's including Bix Beiderbecke, The Dorsey Brothers, Red Nichols, Miff Mole, and Eddie Lang.

Kaufman began recording in 1914 for a variety of labels when he was twenty-four using his own name early on before he began appearing under a number of aliases. Among these multiple pseudonyms were: Frank Harris, Noel Taylor, George Beaver (or Henry Beaver), Pete Killeen, Brian Watt, Marvin Young and Confidential Charlie.
