Biography

The Skip-Jacks were a ’50s vocal quintet that included actress/nude model Stella Stevens, Estelle Mann, Morris Redding, Ron Martin, and leader Bill Bronson.

Today the group is best known for having two 1959 Christmas songs backed by Esquivel (“Here Comes Santa Claus” and “The Christmas Song”). The songs originally appeared on the RCA Christmas compilation entitled “The Merriest of Pops”. Since then, the songs have been re-released on CD as part of the Esquivel’s Christmas album, “Merry Christmas From The Space Age Bachelor Pad”. In addition, “Here Comes Santa Claus (Right Down Santa Claus Lane)” was re-released as The Skip-Jacks on the compilation “Mambo Santa Mambo: Christmas from the Latin Lounge” by Rhino Records.

Aside from their work compiled on CD today with Esquivel, they have a out-of-print catalog backed by other orchestras including Sid Bass, Al Cohn, and Ray Martin.
