CHRISTMAS WITH NAT KING COLE
Tuesday, December 25
Presented by Will Friedwald
Long before he crooned his way into the hearts of the world, Nat King Cole (1919-1965) was already recognized as one of the greatest pianists in the history of jazz. Commemorating Nat’s upcoming centennial year, this unique compilation 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.
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.
