Sometimes I'm a little slow to figure stuff out...in this case it took me 30 
years to realize that the vocalist on the 1934 Charles Barnett Orch ARC of 
"Baby,  Take a Bow" labeled "Jackie" Martin is the same Jack Martin who 
played wtih Kyser, and in the 50s with Welk.

What was strange is that it was the sound of the voice which finally tipped 
me...not the name!  I may be lacking some essential vitamin or something.

Martin was a really good singer and a great sax player,  especially on 
soprano.  His soprano lead on the Kyser Columbia of Can't Get Out of This 
Mood is superb,  as is the entire record.
