This collection features Sammy Davis Jr. as a singer at his best, blending superbly with the beautifully crafted work of arranger Marty Paich conducting his famous jazz Dek-tette and larger orchestral units derived from it. Seasoned with the notable contributions of such jazz soloists as Jack Sheldon, Bud Shank, Mel Lewis and Jimmy Rowles, Paich’s settings were perfect for Davis. And this is how they felt about each other.
