Born on 1919 in Alabama, Nat King Cole first came to prominence as a jazz pianist. He owes most of his popularity to his soft baritone voice, which he used to perform in big band and jazz genres. He started out as a piano man. He put together what would become the King Cole Trio, the name being a play on the children's nursery rhyme. They toured extensively and finally landed on the charts in 1943 with "That Ain't Right," penned by Cole. "Straighten Up and Fly Right," inspired by one of his father's sermons, became another hit for the group in 1944. The trio continued its rise to the top with such pop hits as the holiday classic "The Christmas Song" and the ballad "(I Love You) For Sentimental Reasons." By the 1950s, he emerged as a popular solo performer and had numerous hits, such as "Nature Boy," "Mona Lisa," and "Unforgettable." In the studio, Cole got to work with some of the country's top talent, including Louis Armstrong and Ella Fitzgerald, and famous arrangers such as Nelson Riddle. He also met and befriended other stars of the era, including popular crooner Frank Sinatra. In 1956, he became the first African-American performer to host a variety television series.

Several generations of listeners around the world have memories of some of the most famous songs of which Nat King Cole left us unforgettable recordings, Unforgettable, but also Mona Lisa, Smile, Blue Gardenia, Ballerina and many others... The present box set obviously includes these titles. However, it is also intended to recall, or to make people discover, beyond the extraordinary velvet of his voice, the true dimension of an artist who was much more than a "simple" crooner. King Nat Cole was one of the great men of the jazz piano, a master who left his mark on most of his peers.If in the first CD we hear the popular singer accompanied by various orchestras, he is at the piano throughout the other two; singing at the head of his trio in the second, exclusively instrumentalist in the third, according to various formats from trio to large orchestra.This selection of more than 60 titles and its booklet were concocted by Claude Carrière. Producer of Jazz programs on France Musique from 1974 to 2008, author of numerous phonographic editions, journalist, lecturer, amateur pianist, he is now Honorary President of the Acadmie du Jazz and President of the Maison du Duke.
