Since the Ink Spots disbanded, inthere have been well over a hundred vocal groups calling themselves "The Ink Spots" without any right to the name, and without any original members of the group. It has often been the case that these groups claimed to be "2nd generation" or "3rd generation" Ink Spots.
As "Jerry and Charlie", Daniels and Fuqua had formed a vocal duo performing in the Indianapolis area around Inthat group disbanded, and Watson, Daniels and Java Jive - The Ink Spots - Their Greatest Hits (CD) got together to form a new vocal, instrumental and comedy group, which was initially called "King, Jack, and Jester". They continued to appear regularly on radio in Ohio, and became a foursome when Jones was added to the group the following year.
At this point they had changed their name to "The 4 Ink Spots". The sensation of the programme is the coloured quartette, the Four Ink Spots. Their natural instinct for hot rhythm is exemplified in their terrific single-string solo work and their beautifully balanced and exquisitely phrased vocalisms.
They even throw in a bit of dancing to conclude their act, and the leading guitarist simultaneously plays and juggles with his instrument.
They first recorded for Victor Records inbut although the group was growing rapidly in popularity, their early record releases were not commercially successful. InDaniels was replaced by a year-old singer from Baltimore, Bill Kennywho signed on with the Ink Spots after winning first place in an amateur contest at Harlem's Savoy Ballroom.
Three years later, Kenny was credited for bringing the group to global success with his unusual high tenor ballad singing. This format was used primarily for ballads rather than the uptempo "jive" songs the group was used to performing. This format called for the tenor Kenny or Watson to sing the lead for one chorus followed by a chorus performed by bass singer Jones reciting the lyrics rather than singing them. After a chorus of the "talking bass" the lead tenor sang the rest of the song until the end.
The year also saw Kenny taking his first feature solo in Decca Java Jive - The Ink Spots - Their Greatest Hits (CD). Even though it got a good response, it wasn't very successful in terms of record sales and didn't reach the pop charts. On January 12,the Java Jive - The Ink Spots - Their Greatest Hits (CD) Spots entered Decca studios to record a ballad written by a young songwriter named Jack Lawrence.
This ballad, "If I Didn't Care", was to be one of their biggest hits, selling over 19 million copies and becoming the 8th- best-selling single of all time. It was also the first recording by the group to reach the US Pop Charts. From until the group's disbanding inmany of their songs employed this format.
This was their first 1 hit on the US Pop Charts. Between the years and the Ink Spots landed well over 30 hits on the US Pop Charts with 18 of Java Jive - The Ink Spots - Their Greatest Hits (CD) on the top The Billy Reid composition "The Gypsy" was the Ink Spots' biggest chart success, staying at the 1 position for 13 straight weeks in In the film, the Ink Spots played Pullman porters who sang during their breaks.
Later in the movie, the Ink Spots "make it big time" and sing live on the radio over a national broadcast. They also are featured in a scene with Faye and Payne providing background vocals on a ballad entitled "Where You Are". In this film, the Ink Spots play singing waiters in a nightclub.
The group can be seen singing the ballad "Do I Worry? He chose his friend Bernie Mackey to be his temporary replacement until he returned to the group.
