Friday is for the Doe-See-Doe Goes Old School

It was written by the great Jerry Jeff Walker, made famous by the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, and has become a sort of folk classic, but you know what, I still love Sammy Davis, Jr.'s version best. I think Sammy must have known more than one real-life Mr. Bojangles. When he sings, "We need to see you dance," he means it.

But since we're on the subject of dancers, I can't resist a special bonus for this edition of Friday is for the Doe-See-Doe:

I can't stop myself! Bing and Satchmo, Now You Have Jazz Jazz Jazz!
