5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Outstanding! 16 May 2006
By M. Evans - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Years ago, I was driving down Seventh Ave in Lower Manhattan heading toward the Holland Tunnel for the trip back to Jersey. WNEW played "Look at that Face" from this set, and I immediately detoured to a used record store (the album was out of print then) to pick up a copy of this recording. I was that impressed! I recognized the work of arranger Claus Ogerman ('Sinatra & Jobim' etc) and Sam's in excellent form as you would expect. In the original liner notes, it stated that when composer Richard Rodgers heard the arrangements of two of his tunes from his 1965 Musical "Do I Hear a Waltz" - 'Take the Moment' and the title tune - he sent a wire to Sammy and expressed his utter joy with these recordings. How true, and that's quite a compliment coming from the not-so-easy-to-please Rodgers. On that note, for an equally excellent comparison and a definitive example of musical cadence, I suggest you also check out Tony Bennett's 'Take the Moment' recorded only a few months earlier in 1965 on his "Songs For The Jet Set" album. Dick Rodgers owed them both a thank you note for their marvelous interpretations of this tune.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sammy At His Finest 8 Feb 2008
By Robert J. Usher - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I had a similar experience, having first heard "A Wonderful Day Like Today" on my car radio on WNEW soon after its release in 1965. I was in my late teens at the time, and that song, along with similar themed contributions from Peggy, Lena, Frank, Tony, Dino, and others began what for me would be a long love affair with both WNEW and the music of Sammy Davis, Jr.. Pity that today Sammy is remembered primarily for "The Candy Man" and his association with the Rat Pack -- there was so much more to him than that. Sammy could not only sing with the best of them, he was also a consummate dancer and a truly talented impressionist, right up there with Gorshin and Little. He could have made a successful career of any one of those endeavors. When I first heard that this album had been reissued on CD, I couldn't wait to get my hands on it. Since then, I have given several copies to my friends. For me, Sammy Davis, Jr. was the most talented entertainer who ever lived.

5.0 out of 5 stars wonderful show tunes by one of the finest -- BRAVO, SAMMY DAVIS JR. !!! 1 Oct 2012
By Matthew G. Sherwin - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Sammy Davis Jr. (December 8, 1925 - May 16, 1990) was an incredibly talented man who could act, dance, do impressions--and sing! He loved show tunes and you can tell by the way he delivers them on this album. Sammy's voice is in excellent form here; and that's grand. The arrangements Claus Ogerman are creative and they fit in perfectly with Sammy's vocalizing. The quality of the sound is also very good.

"A Wonderful Day Like Today" starts the album off with a spirited number that has Sammy Davis Jr. squarely front and center--and that's exactly where he belongs! The percussion and brass are used very well in the arrangement, too. "Take the Moment" charms me with its beauty; Sammy handles complex tempo and key changes like a pro and he belts this one out so very well. "The Joker" has a `60s sound to it but make no mistake about it: Sammy sings this wonderfully and it all holds its own very well. "I Want to be With You" is remarkable as well; Sammy does this great justice. "Sunrise, Sunset" again has Sammy singing at his very best and the musical arrangement is quite good although the violins could have been toned down a bit. "Look at That Face" gets the royal treatment from Sammy; I really like "Look at That Face."

"Do I Hear a Waltz" is extremely beautiful; Sammy sings this with genuine heart and soul! "A Room Without Windows" has a `60s rock flavor and Sammy delivers this without letting go of a single superfluous note; it's really quite good. "A Married Man" is done to perfection and beyond; it's great to hear Sammy Davis Jr. perform a show tune that is very underrated. Just one listen to Sammy's rendition of "A Married Man" proves that he could really take a ballad, put his own stamp on it and perform it with panache! Listen also for the poignant "The Other Half of Me;" and the album ends with imaginative renditions of "People" and "Hello, Dolly."

Fans of Sammy Davis, Jr. would do well to add this to their collections; and anyone who likes high quality control show tunes will appreciate this as well. Sammy Davis Jr. may have left us; but he lives on through his contributions to the arts including music like this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ultimate cool 20 Jan 2012

Sammy brings his own unique style to these tunes from Broadway. Just hearing his voice coming out from my DVD player in the car makes any ride more enjoyable and reminds me why I rarely play the radio anymore.
