Product Description

An Evening with Nat King Cole is one of the few Nat "King" Cole concerts ever recorded and arguably the best. All but forgotten in a vault for more than thirty years since its original broadcast in 1961 by the British Broadcasting Company, this captivating show is now available on video for the first time, and in color. With its honest simplicity, "An Evening with Nat King Cole" showcases Nat's ability to touch an audience with his smooth style and gentle grace as seemingly effortless as they are heartfelt. Songs: Day In Day Out, Here's That Rainy Day, The Way You Look Tonight, When I Fall in Love, Aren't You Glad You're You, In the Good Old Summertime, That Sunday (That Summer), Those Lazy Hazy Crazy Days of Summer, Let There Be Love, It's Only a Paper Moon, Sweet Lorraine, Ramblin' Rose, Mona Lisa, Unforgettable.


Fans of both Nat "King" Coles--the swinging hipster and the mainstream pop crooner--should find something to admire in this TV appearance, first broadcast by the BBC in 1961. The 14-song, roughly 50-minute concert favors the hits that brought Cole his biggest commercial successes in the 1950s and '60s, from the memorable ("Unforgettable" and "Mona Lisa") to the middlebrow ("Ramblin' Rose" and "Those Lazy, Hazy, Crazy Days of Summer," which find him barely maintaining his dignity while sporting a straw boater and a ukulele); but those who remember him as a topnotch jazzman are rewarded with a three-song set for which Cole brings out a piano and a quartet and flexes his chops on the likes of "Sweet Lorraine" and "It's Only a Paper Moon." The concert direction is unimaginative and the DVD has no bonus features, but in the end, the inimitable, velvety-smooth voice of Nat "King" Cole needs no extra frills. --Sam Graham
