John Pizzarelli pays tribute to the great Nat King Cole Trio. Pizzarelli is known for his
unique jazz stylizing’s, master of the seven-string guitar and his vast knowledge of jazz
icons including one of his greatest influences, Nat King Cole.
Nat King Cole broke after his first hit “Straighten Up and Fly Right” soared up the charts
in 1943. As a singer, he was called “the best friend a song ever had,” but he was
essentially a jazz performer at heart. Pizzarelli Trio has crafted a tribute to Nat King
Cole, the titan of fifties vocal pop from his hits along with those singular tracks of
sophisticated cool jazz that have influenced John’s career.
