While the group isn’t all that well known by name, they recorded hundreds of commercials for both radio and television in the late 1950s and early 1960s.
They released only four albums – two under the name of “The J’s With Jamie” and two under the name of “Jamie With the J Silvia Singers.” They also released a lot of non-album singles.
None of their albums charted, though their non-LP single, “Yoshiko” is quite collectible.
