Recording information by ChuckcGOLD


When I was growing up, Sammy Davis Jr. was one of my family's favorite entertainers, we would anxiously await for him to perform on Television. Born on December 8, 1925, in New York City, Sammy Davis Jr. overcame prevailing racism to establish himself as an entertainment legend, becoming a successful comedian, actor, dancer and singer. As part of the Rat Pack, with Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin, Davis was known for films like Ocean's 11 and Sergeants 3 along with his partying ways. As his fame grew, his refusal to appear in any clubs that practiced racial segregation led to the integration of several venues in Miami Beach and Las Vegas. A Tony-nominated performer, Davis was also associated with popular recordings like "I've Gotta Be Me" and the No. 1 hit "The Candy Man." He died of throat cancer on May 16, 1990.

A great song from a great, and to me, very underrated, at least in the UK. entertainer! I especially love his laid back style on this track. I keep trying it myself, but can't get the timing right. You however nailed it. Super job!!

While Sammy danced like a Mr. Bojangles, you Chuck blessed us with a beautiful whistle. Your arrangement was fantastic and it is nice to see and hear your songs as they always show so much feeling ...... We are all clapping on this marvelous performance! Yup you whistled at the end and that is what I was hoping you would do ... PERFECT!

Hi Chuck, glad to see you on the new journey.
I actually saw Sammy Davis many years ago. He was very young and sang in a trio with his dad and uncle. Sounding great as usual.
Pushing the LIB.
