    I am English but have most of Jay and the Americans singles and Lps and I play them often. Jay’s voice is so warm and their was no one like him. I have requested in my will that when I pass away I want Cara Mia to be played at my funeral. It was a pity they never came to the UK I would have loved to have met him.Jay you will be sorely missed……

    Great singer.
    His wild and often erratic personality on and off the stage made Rock N Roll fun.

    I was lucky enough to see Jay in concert many times. Westbury shows were the best. Such an intimate setting. The show right after 9/11 was so very emotional. The duets with his son Beau were so very enjoyable. I am very grateful to have heard his beautiful voice many times. He was very funny too. Great guy! I will miss him always. 💔

    Rarely does the passing of a celebrity affect as strongly as Jay’s passing has… His amazing voice, sense of humor, and mere stage presence brought me so many hours of sheer joy and happiness that I feel as if I have lost a beloved relative! Condolences to his family, and in the words of another musical icon, “Who’s gonna fill their shoes?”

    Saddened to hear about Jay Black’s passing. He was always so nice to me and my family, especially to my son. He treated us with respect and always had time to meet with us after his shows. He was the best voice Jay and the Americans had over the years. Thank you Jay for all the years of fun entertainment.
