70 GREAT HITS BY THE CELEBRATED NAT KING COLE!!!

The great Nat “King” Cole (1919-1965) excelled both as a singer and as a pianist, and this superb collection presents 70 highlights from his career showcasing him in a variety of contexts: leading his celebrated trio, as part of a wonderful jazz quintet, and fronting magnifi cent big bands and string sections.

The first CD features Cole in his most swinging mood, while the second is devoted to some of his best ballad interpretations, and, finally, the third compiles his one-of-a-kind versions of classic Spanish songs. All in all, this is a splendid way to enter the wonderful world of Nat King Cole.
