Johnny Loves Jazz

My friend Jarrett introduced me to Johnny Hartman's music a few years ago, playing me the album he recorded with John Coltrane. "Lush Life" did the job, and now I'm a fan for life. Well, not so much a fan as someone who can only stand back and shake his head in wonder.

Here he is performing "It Never Entered My Mind." As an added bonus, Sammy Davis introduces him. As a further added bonus, Sammy plays a nifty hand of vibes to start things off.
