Oh Sammy Davis Junior. He does Nat King Cole proud. Who doesn’t love Sammy’s sweet, deep, smooth vocals? This album is in mint condition & was part of that huge Craigslist score, last year. A keeper for sure & after consultation with my sweety ~in the top 30 records of 2012. Initially put in the JAZZ category, I switched him to VEGAS BABY. Imagine having seen him there? wow. Fav song on this album for me is SMILE, with STRAIGHTEN UP, a close second. Stay tuned for some Nat King Cole to come this year! Happy Saturday bloggers, I’m starting to feel better.
Sammy has one of the COOLEST websites I have seen. It’s really beautiful. check it out here.
Some Sammy facts: He appeared in 20 movies, was highly acclaimed ~winning every entertainment award imaginable ~ lifetime achievements, grammys, emmy’s, globes, Tonny’s, hall of fames, peace prizes, as well as he won for guest appearances on The Cosby Show and the soap opera One Life to Live! I could write for hours about this accomplished, tap dancer, singer, actor, musician, who sadly passed away in 1990. enjoy a clip from his website today.
