Album Review

Nat "King" Cole's 16 trio recordings for Decca have been reissued many times (including on this CD), and rightfully so. Cole was already one of the top swing pianists by 1940, his vocal style (best displayed on his first hit "Sweet Lorraine") was quite recognizable, and his trio with guitarist Oscar Moore and bassist Wesley Prince had a memorable sound. Cole's Decca records (his first for a major label) were a breakthrough for Nat, although his Capitol recordings (which started in 1943) really paved the way toward major success. In addition to "Sweet Lorraine," highlights of this fine CD include "Honeysuckle Rose," "I Like to Riff," and "Hit That Jive, Jack" (which has the Trio's most famous group vocal).

Jazz is awesome

Nat King Cole rules and I only wish more people felt the same way :)

i love nat king cole trio

I think this album shows how versatile Nat King Cole Trio can be. THEY ARE THE SHIZNITT/ i once found this old saggy homeless man on the street and he looked really old.
