Bobby Doyle (jazz vocalist)
Bobby Doyle (né Robert Glen Doyle; 14 August 1939 Houston — 30 July 2006 Austin) was an American jazz singer, bassist and pianist. He is known internationally for having performed with Blood, Sweat & Tears in 1972. Doyle recorded two tracks on Blood, Sweat & Tears’ 1972 album, New Blood. Doyle was blind.
Doyle is known by Austin music fans of the late 1950s and 1960s for The Bobby Doyle Trio (aka "The Bobby Doyle Three"), which he started after graduating from McCallum High School in the late 1950s. The other musicians in the trio were Don Russell and standup bass player Kenny Rogers, then a student at the University of Texas. Rogers soon dropped out of college to join Doyle full-time, singing high harmony and playing bass on the 1962 album "In a Most Unusual Way." The trio disbanded in 1965, and Rogers went on to become a country-pop sensation.
