Overview

Nat King Cole was a pretty fair jazz piano player, but it was his rich, warm, and smoothly elegant vocal style (which pretty much allowed him to sing even a soup recipe and make it work) that made him into an icon. This 70-track set has "Mona Lisa," "Sweet Lorraine," "Unforgettable," and dozens of other Cole classics, and while it doesn't have all of his hits or essential tracks by any means, there's still plenty here. [A Deluxe Edition of Extraordinary was released in 2014.]
