That's All was recorded at Las Vegas' Sands Hotel in 1966. Its two CDs feature Davis in front of a full-scale orchestra (including a string section) and a repertoire typically Davisian in its idiosyncrasies. Standards such as "With a Song in my Heart" and "Without a Song" rub shoulders with Disney and musicals hits like "What Kind of Fool Am I?" and "The Lady Is a Tramp". There are also the obligatory bows to his label boss and straw boss, Frank Sinatra, with "Chicago", "The Birth of the Blues" and a 10-minute version of "One for My Baby" that includes Jewish jokes, impersonations and comic routines. The routines are incredibly tight, even down to the pretend-gaffes and re-takes, all of which the audience gulps down like a hungry beast. Davis had a phenomenal talent, a wonderfully expressive and pliable voice, and incredible showbiz-like energy: the two things he falls short on a little too regularly on his records are taste and a sense of a settled artistic direction. Wonderfully entertaining, then, but ultimately showbiz rather than art, if such things matter to you. --Keith Shadwick
Top Customer Reviews
The first CD is most notable for its humor and monologue. Sammy's monologue, in fact, lasts almost ten full minutes and is quite personal and extremely hilarious.Read more ›
