Swingin' Sammy 

                                      from Howard Murray, son of Jan Murray

                             Thanks to Howard Murray, son of Jan Murray, for sharing very special photos below. 

                                         Please note the lovely gift Sammy Davis Jr. gave to Jan Murray..

Howard writes "The gift was for Dad filling in at the Carnegie Hall Benefit honoring MLK Jr. At the last minute Joey, for what ever reason, decided not to fly in for the show. Sammy called Dad, and he was happy to join them. These guys knew how to have fun! Of the hundreds of live shows I saw Dad do, this would have been at the top of my list of ones I wish I had seen.."

Photo above is a collage of Frank Sinatra, Jan Murray and Dean Martin, with Sammy Davis Jr just behind them, at the Carnegie Hall Benefit for MLK Jr.  Below is a photo of Jan and Sammy, and the gift Sammy had engraved

The engraving says " My undying thanks for being the Pro and the friend that I always knew you were. Your boy, Sammy Jr."
