Best of Nat King Cole: The Instrumental Classics/The Vocal Classics

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Michael G. Nastos
With 62 total tracks, including many of Nat King Cole's most beloved vocal numbers along with his underappreciated world-class piano trio recordings all in one package, you can't go wrong with this unless it is out of your budget. If you have no Nat King Cole whatsoever in your collection, you'd be well advised to save up until you can get this definitive, well-recorded, and nicely documented compilation.
