Black Metal

A brilliant and unexpectedly successful merger of blazing black metal and traditional Appalachian instrumentation, the multifaceted nature of Roads to the North could come off as gimmicky or pretentious if the compositions didn't feel so inarguably genuine.

Cast Recordings

This is one of popular entertainer Sammy Davis, Jr's best jazz-oriented albums, featuring Davis with the Count Basie Orchestra performing arrangements by Quincy Jones. The singer is heard in top form on "Teach Me Tonight," "Work Song," and "Keepin' Out of Mischief Now" and adding a bit of tap dancing to a lighthearted "Bill Basie Won't You Please Come Home."
