All that can presently (April 2021) be gleaned about J. Rogers
from sheet music covers and by Internet searching is that he has been recognised as a singer of just one work namely Asleep in the Deep
(1897) music by Henry W. Petrie
, words by Arthur J. Lamb and published by M. Witmark and Sons
, New York, Chicago, San Francisco, USA. Here, he kept and keeps company with many famous basses of yesterday and today.
