Natalie Cole's transition from R&B diva to sophisticated pop-jazz crooner is nothing new (cf. Unforgettable, her early '90s tribute to father Nat "King" Cole), but it comes to its fullest fruition with this 90-minute, 18-song performance, recorded in London with a full orchestra. The 2002 show (originally aired on PBS) celebrates the release of Cole's Tommy LiPuma-produced CD of the same name, and the majority of the songs from that album are heard here, along with "This Will Be," her first solo hit, and others. Cole is also joined by Diana Krall for two numbers, including a swinging "Route 66" (popularized by Cole's dad half a century ago), while Krall performs the Gershwin standard "'S Wonderful" solo, adding a sultry, understated vibe to the proceedings. Nothing particularly challenging here, but Cole has clearly found her footing. A 17-minute interview with the singer highlights the DVD bonus features. --Sam Graham

I loved this album. She is a great singer with terrific arrangements, and a great choice of songs. I would highly recommend this album. She can sing it all from jazz, ballads to swing. And, what a nice touch to do a duet with Diana Krall,...another class act.
