I hope that Darlene Sacks unintentionally misspoke in using "infamous" to
describe Cantor Joseph (Yossele) Rosenblatt. I assume she meant to say
"famous". Yossele Rosenblatt (1882-1833) was considered to be the most
popular cantor of the century. In addition to his synagogue and concert
work he was also the the cantor seen and heard in Al Jolson's "Jazz
Singer". Detailed information on his life can be found in the biography
"Yossele Rosenblatt", Farrar, Straus and Young.
