Sammy Davis Jr. Sings About Mr. Bojangles

A friend of mine sent me the link to this clip of Sammy Davis Jr. singing Mr. Bojangles. I had never seen this particular video before. Check out those threads Sammy is wearing.

one of the greatest live performers of the 20th century - along with Jolson and Garland.

he was still superb all the way til that last tour in '89 with Frank and Liza ( she was still at her peak too).

Hey Zeus. Thanks. Sammy is one of my favorite entertainers of all time. The man could do it all. He could sing, dance, act, tell jokes, do impressions, you name it. What an amazing man and entertainer.

I see you posted that clip I sent you the link for. I still prefer the other clip of this song better, but I do like this one. Sammy is wearing one tight outfit.

Hey Phoebe. Thanks for commenting. I decided to post the clip here instead of over at my blog. I do like the other version of this song better, but it's a good clip. I get a kick out of Sammy's threads.
