    Biography :

    When the Ivories / Love Notes disbanded in the Summer of 1957, Johnny Earl Jackson, who was part of the original Ivories who recorded on Jaguar Records "Alone" and "Baby Send A Letter",  formed a new group. Since the Ivories were no longer in existence (having become the Love Notes), he recycled the name.  The New Ivories group consisted of his girlfriend, Ella Lee Lewis Jr. (lead), her brother, Richard Lewis (first tenor),  Moses Brown (baritone), a second tenor named "Blinky" and Johnny Earl Jackson (baritone/bass).
