20-PAGE BOOKLET

“Cole’s devotion, perhaps most memorably and mellifluously expressed in ‘Mona Lisa’, was to the enigma of beauty, that transcendent thing that we cannot adequately define but which werecognise as soon as confronted by it. Try ‘Blame It on My Youth’ here. Is it jazz? Probably. Is it beautiful? Certainly. Does it survive the ages? It has so far.” - PENGUIN GUIDE TO JAZZ

“Welcome to a world where everything seems light, graceful and airy –bright, cheerful and romantic –swinging, dancing and stunning. You are lucky, this world is that of Nat “King” Cole, who in those beautiful days of August and September 1956, at Los Angeles’ Capitol Studios, rediscovered the contagious happiness of singing while accompanying himself on the piano.” - JAZZ MAGAZINE
