Inside The Groove

A very fascinating, funny and entertaining vocal performances by famous entertainers/tap dancers/actors duo.

Personal Impression (and brief notes)

Nicholas Brothers - the too famous and great tap dancers - even recorded a fine jazzy album like this. Unlike Fred Astaire's awesome studio date, Nicholas Brothers are backed up with fine jazzy orchestra. But their call-and-response, singing, and tapping is all fantastic.

A fine example of The Entertainment. If you like Fred Astaire or Sammy Davis Jr., you'll like this album.

Strictly Personal Rating (to what extent I could enjoy this album)

8 out of 10
