In 1991, Raymond De Felitta was listening to the radio and heard a singer by the name of Jackie Paris. Entranced by his style and unique technique, De Felitta began researching Paris and learned that he had opened for Lenny Bruce and that his voice was admired by, among others, Ella Fitzgerald, Nat Cole and Sarah Vaughn. However, his research abruptly ended when he read that the notoriously volatile Paris had died in 1977. De Felitta thought that was the end of the story but one night he spotted an advertisement listing Paris' comeback. Stunned, he wondered where had Paris been all these years, what had come of his life and why had a singer of this talent fallen into such obscurity.
