Nat ‘King’ Cole owed his stellar international reputation to his soft baritone, although before he started singing professionally he was already an accomplished jazz pianist. This album of his later vocal hits, from ‘Unforgettable’ to ‘Mona Lisa’ and ‘Million-Dollar Baby’ reveals a wonderful musician at work. A film star and idol of the 50s, he was feted by public and politicians alike, not least for his pioneering TV shows.
