In the late-night talk show field, where the band-leader-as-sidekick has been done ad nauseam, Raymond Jones stands alone as the invisible bandleader. As musical director for the "Keenan Ivory Wayans Show," Jones selects, arranges and rehearses all the music played by the show's glamorous, all-female grunge/funk band without ever appearing on screen. Jones has spent most of his 20-year musical career in the background.

When a small group of workers returned to the blacked-out aquarium a few days ago, the smell was nauseating.
