A member of the Rat Pack and an icon of cool, the multi-talented Sammy Davis Jr (singer, dancer, actor, and comedian) was known throughout his career as 'the world's greatest entertainer'.  When in search of artistic freedom, Frank Sinatra founded Reprise Records in 1960 -he was quickly joined by the performers whose style he personally admired, like Duke Ellington, Rosemary Clooney, as well as fellow rat packers Dean Martin and Sammy Davis, Jr., who was to spend nearly a decade with the label.  Here he is captured here at his high-flying best on ballads, show tunes and standards.
