Sammy Davis Jr. I Gotta Right to Swing/It's All Over but the Swingin/Sammy Swings Import Vinyl LP
Samuel George Davis Jr. was an American singer, musician, dancer, actor, vaudevillian and comedian, noted for his impressions of actors, musicians and other celebrities. At the age of three, Davis Jr. began his career in vaudeville with his father, Sammy Davis Sr. and the Will Mastin Trio, which toured nationally.
After military service, Davis Jr. returned to the trio and became an overnight sensation following a nightclub performance at Ciro's (in West Hollywood) after the 1951 Academy Awards. With the trio, he became a recording artist. In 1954, at the age of 29, he lost his left eye in a car accident. Several years later, he converted to Judaism, finding commonalities between the oppression experienced by African-American and Jewish communities.
Small in stature but big in talent, Sammy Davis Jr. was far and away one of the greatest entertainers show business has ever seen. You name it he could do it at the highest level...actor, comedian, singer, dancer, and instrumentalist. I Gotta Right To Swing is a 1960 studio album which finds Sammy accompanied by an uncredited Count Basie Orchestra, minus Count Basie himself. It's an invigorating mix of up-tempo swing and hard-hitting rhythm & blues.
It's All Over But The Swingin' and Sammy Swings are both 1957 albums arranged by Jack Pleis' Orchestra, Morty Stevens' Orchestra and the Sy Oliver Orchestra. The tracks "Oo-Shoo-Be-Doo-Be" and "By Myself" have been omitted due to time constraints.
