Complete After Midnight Sessions
Nat King Cole
Essential Jazz Classics
Warning: Last items in stock!
After Midnight is a splendid, primarily instrumental album, which was to be one of his last hits as a pianist (as opposed to a singer and entertainer), presenting the classic Nat King Cole Trio plus some of his illustrious friends in jazz (drums and horns). The current edition contains the complete master takes in their original session order, allowing the listener to enjoy the music just as it was recorded and fully appreciate the collaboration between Cole's magic and the horns. As a bonus, there is a previous session featuring Cole in a quartet format and backed by the same rhythm section.
