Boy Meets Girl: The Complete Sammy Davis Jr. And Carmen Mcrae On Decca
Released: Jul 2005
Though they look bizarrely alike on the cover, showbiz Sammy and cool jazz vocalist McRae had distinct styles that worked well together. On Boy Meets Girl calm Carmen tries to keep her honor intact against a souped-up Sammy (who sounds great, though his Jerry Lewis-styled nerd/horndog asides get old quick). Also includes their serious reading of Porgy & Bess.
