The jazz singer, whose biggest hit was The Lady is a Tramp, has died in Vegas.

He used to say he owed his success to his father, who owned a record store in Philadelphia and wrote opera reviews for the papers.

    He was also a terrific jazz piano player. He played in Benny Goodman’s ill-fated “be bop” big band circa 1948-49.
