About that time, there was a young singer named Joannie Sommers. She had a
great jazz style, and made a few good recordings. They were getting air
play, and Steve Allen had her on his TV show. I thought she was going to be
a success in the jazz idiom, but her managers(?) talked her into branching
into the pop field to garner a larger audience. The jazz audience promptly
abandoned her; and she really didn't have a feeling for the pop drivel, so
the pop audience didn't really latch on to her either. I haven't heard
anything about her since.
