Sammy Davis, Jr. - At The Cocoanut Grove At The Cocoanut Grove
Jazz New - LP R9 6063/2 Reprise
Sealed 1963 Tri Color Steamboat Label 2LP Stereo Original. Pristine Copy. Captured On Stage At The Cocoanut Grove Lounge Of The Ambassador Hotel In Los Angeles This Great Double Album Heralds The End Of An Era For Sammy Davis Jr. After His Unparalleled Success On Broadway In Golden Boy, No Longer Would He Be Relegated To Nightclubs And Vegas Showcases. At The Cocoanut Grove Is A Timepiece Lauding The His Versatility As A Nightclub Entertainer. The Dramatic Qualities That He Brings To His Performance, Coupled With His Inimitable Repartee With The Audience, Are Honed With An Assuredness That Wherever You Have Been In Life, Sammy Has Been Right There Along For The Ride. This "Everyman" Trait Is Likewise Shared By Frank Sinatra. The Seemingly Effortless Flow Between Rock Standards Such As "Hound Dog" With Rhythm & Blues On "What'd I Say" Should Not Be Discounted As Novelty. The Musical Punctuation Provided By Dick Stable And Orchestra Contributes Immensely In Creating Open Soundscapes. They Allow Him Enough Room To Utilize His Immense Talents While Never Overpowering Him. Their Contributions To The "West Side Story Medley" In Particular Are As Much A Highlight As Is His Show-Stopping Performance.... more details

Sammy Davis, Jr. - Nat King Cole Song Book Nat King Cole Song Book
Jazz New - LP RS 6164 Reprise
Sealed, Rare Tri-Color Steamboat Label Stereo Original. Archival Quality Copy. “The Nat King Cole Song Book (1965) Was Issued As An Homage By Sammy Davis Jr. (Vocals) To Nat King Cole, Whose Untimely Passing In February Of 1965 Prompted Davis To Document This Tribute. Alongside Cole's Collaborator, Billy May, And Notable Jazz Arranger Claus Ogerman, Davis And Company Turned In One Of The Finest And Most Underrated Efforts. The Obvious Affinity And Respect The Artist Had For Cole Dated Back To Davis' Work With The Will Mastin Trio In The 1940s. No One Can Match Cole's Refined And Sublime Delivery However, Davis Adds His Own Unique Presence To A Variety Of Pop Ballads, Early R&B Tunes, And All Seminal Entries In Cole's Sizable Catalog. While The Album Contains A Total Of 14 Songs, Both "Smile" And "Christmas Song" [Aka "Chestnuts Roasting On An Open Fire"] Have Been Repeated From Previous Outings, Leaving An Even Dozen Selections Recorded Specifically For The Project. Davis Sticks To Classic Numbers Closely (If Not Primarily) Identified With Cole, Many Of Which Were Among The Late Vocalist's Biggest Hits. In Fact, The Disc Commences With His Highest Charting Single Of The 1960s, "Rambling Rose." May's Unmistakable Score Swings On A Firm Mid-Tempo Stride And The Breezy Brass Section Is Efficiently Interspersed Throughout. Another Of Cole's Top Platters Is The Bouncy And Soulful "Send For Me." Again, May's Trademark Horn Interjections Propel The Melody, As Davis Gives A Suitably Rousing And Lively Reading. The Sophisticated "Route 66" Has Rarely Packed The Punch It Does Here, Recalling Davis' Interpretation Of Mel Tormé's California Suite. Special Kudos Deserved Of The Closing Medley Of "Mona Lisa," "Too Young," And Cole's Signature "Nature Boy." Ogerman's Restrained Instrumentation Allows Davis Room To Make The Melodies His Own, While Still Very Much Retaining The Warm, Embracing, And Above All Gentle Style That Defined Nat King Cole.” AMG.... more details
 
Sammy Davis, Jr. - All Star Spectacluar All Star Spectacluar
Pop New - LP R9 6033 Reprise
Sealed 1961 Tri-Color Steamboat Label Stereo Original. Archival Quality Copy. "In 1960 Sammy Davis, Jr. Signed On To Frank Sinatra's Reprise Label At The Zenith Of His Success And Association With Ol' Blue Eyes And Dean Martin As A Member Of The One And Only Rat Pack. All-Star Spectacular (1962) Presents Davis Like Never Before, Both As A Dynamic Vocalist And As An Actor Of Equally Impressive Proficiency. As Davis Explains During The Brief Spoken Introduction, The Idea Behind This Title Is To Capture Some Of The Good-Natured Frivolity Of His One-Man Show Onto The Grooves Of A Studio LP. Backed By Conductor And Arranger Morton Stevens, Davis Demonstrates His Uncanny Abilities On The First Half Of The Affair As An Impressionist, Singing Pop Standards Under The Guise Of A Wide Spectrum Of Well-Known Personalities. Among The Highlights Are His Send-Up Of Raymond Chandler And Frankie Laine On The Opener, "That Lucky Old Sun." Undeniably, The Best Of Them All Is Davis' Parody Of Mario Lanza And Louis "Satchmo" Armstrong On The Sammy Kahn Classic "Be My Love." The Second Half Of All-Star Spectacular Consists Of Straightforward Interpretations Of A Half-Dozen Swinging Sides, Representing The Best Of What The Artist Has To Offer As A Vibrant Singer And Consummate Performer. The Heartfelt "If You Are But A Dream" Is Given An Upbeat Delivery Set Against A Scintillating Mambo Backdrop. Rodgers And Hart's "I Married An Angel" Bursts With The Brassy Verbosity That Became Davis' Calling Card, While "You Can't Love 'Em All" Is Nothing Short Of The Definitive Swingin' Space-Age-Bachelor-Pad Anthem, Not To Mention The Second Of Two Sammy Kahn Lyrical Contributions. Although There Are Many Facets To Sammy Davis, Jr.'S Immeasurable Talents, All-Star Spectacular Is A Unique Album, Cashing In On His Sizable Talents As A Seminal Master Of Melody And Allowing For A Peek Into His Infectious Sense Of Humor."
