This selection of recordings by Sammy from the 1990s is a good example of his special talent for combining a repertoire of standards with other numbers that are rarely used as jazz vehicles. It follows the eclectic New Orleans tradition which has always been the approach taken by musicians from the Crescent City. Tracks from 4 sessions recorded between 1995 and 1999 are featured here, using musicians Sammy has been associated with over the years in different bands. The common denominator in all these line-ups is Big Bill Bissonnette, who had been of invaluable help to the young Sammy in obtaining a special work permit for him to appear with his Easy Riders band in Connecticut in 1965, after leaving Ken Colyer.
