CD Reviews

The Nat King Cole Songbook - Sammy Davis Jr.
Lorraine | Scotland | 02/24/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"An excellent tribute to Nat King Cole from Sam, this collection is smooth and arguably one of the best interpretations of Cole's music ever. A must for Sammy fans, whose own inimitable style shines through from the start, you will be in no doubt that this is Sam singing from the very first notes - suberb musical arrangement as always makes it most memorable!"
