I read a review of this recently re-released album, and the reviewer raved about Nat King Cole's piano playing ability and how this is a favorite CD of his. He was right; this is an amazing discovery of a wonderful artist! The quality is terrific and you get the feeling it was one of those concerts that was a once in a lifetime event.

Nat KingCole was not just a singer, but also a fantastic Jazz pianist. This 1949 Carnegie Hall Concert shows all his talents. Wonderful Cd.

Format: Audio CD
As a hard core Nat King Cole fan and amateur jazz historian this 'discovery' is a delightful listen and a must-have album for my library. For those who track such things, the concert date was November 4, 1949.

However, do not think that this album is the first (or last) to show off Nat's virtuoso piano skills. His playing at Jazz at the Philharmonic concerts showcased those. Check out Jazz At The Philharmonic: feat - Body And Soul [ORIGINAL RECORDINGS REMASTERED] from a July 1944 concert for evidence.

What I love about this album, aside from the historical value, is the music itself. The fifteen tracks are pure Nat King Cole in jazz form. Another treat, because I am a Woody Herman fan, is when his herd joins in on Last Moon, adding icing to a musical cake for me.

Nat's trio at this concert did not include any of the original members. Irving Ashby replaced Oscar Moore on guitar and Joe Comfort took over Johnny Miller's bass spot. Plus, by this point in Nat's career, it was Nat King Cole and his Trio, not the Nat King Cole Trio. The third member was percussionist Jack Costanzo who played bongos on this album.

While Ashby is my second favorite trio guitarist and Comfort's bass was solid, the synergy of the original trio was not there in this performance. Or it just may be my imagination. Regardless, the music is consistently excellent and guarantees that this album will get a lot of play time.

The sound is fairly good for the period, although an audiophile would probably find fault.
