RIP Jackie Cain.

Jackie Cain died on Monday Sept. 15. Really sad news to anyone familiar with the dynamic vocal duo Jackie and Rov [Kral].
They really were something else breathing a breath of spring to 1940s/50s vocals. Cool bebop phrases and harmonies, first with Charlie Ventura's Bop For the People combo and then as a duo. I never caught them live, only on LP. Roy's piano playing, as modern as tomorrow and as traditional as yesterday, coupled with his and her vocals they are still an object lesson for singers. Nobody sung scat quite like them.
Roy died in 2002 and now Jackie, aged 86, is gone.
Sadly missed.
