A jazz performer at heart, Nat King Cole broke the pop barrier with his smoky, smooth vocals, stringing along a huge number of solid hits right after his first “Straighten Up And Fly Right.” Ramsey Lewis and John Pizzarelli have crafted a tribute to the titan of fifties vocal pop, from his hits to the singular tracks of sophisticated cool jazz that have influenced their own careers. Lewis, a master musician with over 50 years of performance behind him, is the perfect choice to represent Cole at the piano. Guitarist Pizzarelli remains a “master of Nat King Cole cool, swinging such standards as ‘Just In Time.’” – The Seattle Times
