Husband and wife team Paul Weston and Jo Stafford often used to entertain their guests with a routine whereby Jo, an accomplished singer, would sing off-key and high pitched whilst Paul, a keyboard maestro, would play off key and off rhythm. One day Paul used the routine to entertain several Columbia Records executives whilst filling in at a sales convention, with the reception such that the company asked for an album worth of material! Worried that the idea might run thin over a whole album, Paul drafted in Jo and together they created The Original Piano Artistry Of Jonathan Edwards, with the name coming from an 18th century Calvinist preacher. The true identity of Jonathan and Darlene Edwards was shrouded in mystery for some time, leading many to conclude that it was Margaret and Harry Truman (the US President and First Lady!), before the real perpetrators were revealed. The act proved so popular they would go on to win a Grammy Award (in 1960, for Best Comedy Album; it was the only Grammy Award either won!), continuing to release material even after their true identities were known.
