Your opinion of Sammy Davis Jr.'s renditions of mus. numbers
Dear Musicals.Net Posters,
What are your opinions about Sammy Davis Jr.'s renditions of various musical numbers (Ie: Songs from "Doctor Dolittle", etc.)? Do you think that he performed those numbers MORE entertainingly than did the original artists? Do you think that he was LESS entertaining than the original artists, and/ or that he was too pop music-esque, with regards to his delivery of musical numbers? Do you think that he was always on par with, but not better than, the artists whose songs he was covering?
I personally believe that he was usually on par with those artists, if not MORE entertaining than at least some of them! His renditions of musical theatre numbers always sound enthusiastic, fresh, and occasionally smooth and sexy, too!
Thank you in advance for your replies.
