Nat King Cole
Warning: Last items in stock!
Appearing at a time when for the grand public Nat King Cole was more of a singer and entertainer than a jazz pianist, this album was a reminder of Nat’s superlative skills as an instrumentalist. For the remainder of his successfulcareer –which ended with his sudden death in 1965 due to lung cancer– he continued singing more and more, and playing less and less. This splendid instrumental album 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 his usual collaborator Jack Costanzo.
Recorded at Capitol Studios, Los Angeles. A1-A4 & B1-B4: July 18, 1952. A5-A6 & B5-B7: July 14, 1955.
