    Nat King Cole’s velvet voice embodied elegance, and his piano playing was equally brilliant.

     

    Fall in love again with “Unforgettable” and “Mona Lisa,” brought to you by the incomparable Freddy Cole — Nat’s brother — and a band boasting the warm tones of cornetist Warren Vaché and tenor saxophonist Houston Person. Take a smooth ride down “Route 66”!
