Jo's producer and collaborator Bob Summers, the brother of Mary Ford and brother-in-law of Les Paul, began his performing and recording career while still in his teens. Following the separation of Mary and Les Paul, Bob took over as the guitarist for his sister as she continued her career as a singer. By the early '60s, he had become increasingly more involved in record production. Bob arranged, engineered, played all the instruments and sang background vocals on Terry Stafford's hit single 'Suspicion.'

Bob had his own Top 40 record on MGM in 1971, 'When I'm Dead and Gone.' He continued his partnership with Mike Curb, becoming the musical director for the Mike Curb Congregation. He later opened his own studio as an independent producer, operating as Bob Summers Music. Bob has composed for countless TV shows and movies, Such as the 'Grizzly Aadams' TV Series, and 'Movie of the Week' specials on NBC.
