UNFORGETTABLE NAT KING COLE Presented by Will Friedwald


Sunday, March 17

Long before he crooned his way into the hearts of the world, Nat King Cole, born exactly 100 years ago today (March 17, 1919), was already recognized as one of the greatest pianists in the history of jazz. This unique compilation, a reprise of our sold-out Christmas presentation, looks at both sides of this unforgettable musician and entertainer through the lens of jazz, blues and popular music – using rare film and television footage not available anywhere. Produced by Bruce Goldstein. Approx. 100 min.

Presented by Wall Street Journal feature writer and jazz critic Will Friedwald, author of the forthcoming book Nat King Cole: Straighten Up and Fly Right.
