~ The Lovezone with Geena Lee ~ Episode 54: Nat King Cole
He would have turned 92 years old today. Born Nathaniel Adams Coles (March 17, 1919 – February 15, 1965), Nat King Cole was an accomplished jazz pianist who rose to fame not for his fingers, but due to the smooth and elegant baritone voice that was his trademark. Sadly, Cole died of lung cancer when he was only 45 years old, but he is forever immortalized in the many recordings of his jazz & blues ballads. He also lives on in the talent of his daughter, singer Natalie Cole. In 2000, Cole was posthumously inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame for his major influence on the genre, and I doubt future generations will go without being familiar with at least one of his songs. In honour of the unforgettable King Cole, here’s a mix that’ll keep him in your memory.
