Torrent description

Sammy Davis Jr. & Count Basie - Our Shining Hour
Year: 1965
Label: Verve (1994)
Total time: 35:11
Bitrate: 320 kbps

This is one of popular entertainer Sammy Davis, Jr's best jazz-oriented albums. The CD reissue features Davis with the Count Basie Orchestra performing arrangements by Quincy Jones. Unfortunately, the personnel of the Basie band is not given, but the orchestra mostly acts as a prop behind Davis much of the time anyway. The singer is heard in top form on "Teach Me Tonight," "Work Song," and "Keepin' out of Mischief Now," adding a bit of tap dancing to a lighthearted "Bill Basie Won't You Please Come Home." Some of the more poppish tunes, such as "Blues for Mr. Charlie" and "She's a Woman," are a bit dated, but, in general, fans of Sammy Davis Jr will want this set. ~ Scott Yanow, AMG

Sammy Davis, Jr., singing songs arranged by Quincy Jones to the accompaniment of Count Basie and his orchestra - this recording could not possibly be anything but fantastic. I prefer Sammy's finger-snapping, toe-tapping showstoppers, but every so often it's nice to sit down and listen to the world's greatest entertainer relax and sing some slow jazz songs. The musical accompaniment here is, in a word, excellent; rather than overshadow Sammy's singing, it actually heightens the amazing effect of his singular vocal stylings (although Count Basie gives us a "blow, man, blow" moment in The Girl From Ipanema). Of course, these aren't all slow and tender vocal musings; a listen to Work Song or the sizzling She's a Woman (W-O-M-A-N) proves that. Several of these songs were quite unknown to me up until now, but among those I am familiar with are the golden oldie classic Teach Me Tonight, the swinging New York City Blues, and Keepin' Out of Mischief Now, which appears here in a much smoother, slower version than I have heard Sammy sing elsewhere. Of course, Dean Martin's You're Nobody Till Somebody Loves You is no stranger to my ears, but Sammy really brings a fresh new interpretation to this classic Dino hit. The other songs included here are all fantastic, but the final track is especially interesting. Sammy requests a little Buck dance (also known as Buck and Wing) music in honor of his dad and uncle and then tap dances his way through Bill Basie Won't You Please Come Home. When Our Shining Hour is over, Count Basie says something to the effect of "It can't get no better than that." That statement sums this album up perfectly. ~ Daniel Jolley "darkgenius"
