Born Robert Lee Gray, Bobby grew up on a plantation in Winterville, Washington County, Mississippi. At the age of 7, he was put to work in the cotton fields. Everybody in the area worked on a cotton farm. Life was hard. Most people were poor, and Bobby was no exception. But cotton wasn’t the only thing Bobby began early. Living in such close proximity to the likes of BB King, Mississippi Slim and Bobby Bland, he was bitten by the blues bug. By age 11, he was frequenting juke joints. Bands would come from nearby Greenville to play in Winterville. If he could scrape together enough money, Bobby would go inside to see the show. If he didn’t have the money, he listened from outside, and dreamed of trading the cotton hoe for a microphone.

The brainchild of life-long jazz devotee Steve Allen, the series showcases many of the very best California-based jazz performers, not to mention rare TV appearances by outstanding national acts as well.

There are some occasional bright spots on this late '80s album by outstanding session guitarist Paul Jackson, Jr. But because it's halfway between instrumental pop and fusion, Jackson and such guests as Gerald Albright and George Duke never really cut loose and displayed their full skills, while the vocals from O'Bryan and others were generic and delivered in a flat, routine manner.

Fans of the pre-eminent New Orleans electric guitarist of the '40s and '50s should make note of the "Junior" appendage to that name. This is not Eddie Jones, the original Guitar Slim, but his son, Rodney Armstrong, born in New Orleans in 1951. Although Armstrong didn't grow up with his father, who died in 1959, he seems to absorbed a good amount of his style, along with the rougher-edged playing of Chicago-style guitar masters like Albert and Freddie King. This 1996 release is a live-in-the-studio session featuring the Memphis Horns. Armstrong's playing is fiery throughout, but with a sweetness of tone in songs like "Oo Wee Baby I Love You" and a take on the Otis Redding arrangement of the standard "Try A Little Tenderness" that's reminiscent of his father.

Sammy Davis, Jr. was an outsized talent. Whether dancing or singing or acting (or drumming, or doing impersonations), he spent more energy, carried more emotion, and involved himself more deeply in his performances than any other artist of his caliber. His earliest hit material – "Something's Gotta Give," "Love Me or Leave Me," "That Old Black Magic" – signalled the advent of a show-biz vocalist who could blow the roof off the joint like a blues shouter, and though Davis was impeccably refined, he was obviously channeling Broadway figures like Ethel Merman or Al Jolson rather than the mellowed, mellifluous sound of swing-influenced vocalists.
