I first saw Harold Mabern preform in the early seventies with tenor saxophonist George Coleman. Was struck both by his chops (technical ability) and his ability to groove. In recent years he has recorded and performed consistently with George Coleman's former student and protégé, the gifted tenor saxophonist Eric Alexander.
They are back again in this beautiful tribute to Sammy Davis Jr. This record is contemporary hard bop at it's best. It sounds like music of this decade. The phrasing, licks, and patterns played identify this as 21st Century jazz. Old heads like me will still love it as will any jazz lover of any age. Please do not sleep on this beautiful record.

Was listening to WBGO radio from Newark NJ and one of the songs from this album played. I thoroughly enjoyed all of the tracks on this album. I encourage jazz fans to take a listen.

When I was a kid, my father had a reel-to-reel tape recorder. And the first song I've heard was,"Mr. Lucky" by Henry Mancini. Harold Mabern did his thing on this song. I haven't bought the album yet. But rest assured, Its something GREAT.

As much as I like listening to Sammy Davis Jr., I never thought I'd want to hear songs like "I've Gotta Be Me" and "The People Tree" again. Shows what I know. Without those pesky cornball lyrics, Harold Mabern proves that the tunes have interesting changes, and can really swing.

The band cooks on the showtunes and standards on this uptempo album, and the one Mabern original, "Soft Shoe Trainin' with Sammy" turns out to be "Hit the Road to Dreamland" in Trane-chasing mode. "Hey There," a piano solo, and the trio feature "What Kind of Fool Am I?" are the only ballads, and they reminded me of what a great balladeer Davis was -- made me want to dig out those duet albums he made with Laurindo Almeida back in the day.
