I'm Not My Brother, I'm Me

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Scott Yanow
One can sympathize with Freddie Cole's plight. The younger brother of Nat King Cole, Freddie has spent most of his life in his brother's shadow, even though Nat died in 1965. The problem is that Freddie is also a pianist/vocalist and sometimes performs similar material.

Add to that such originals as "He Was the King" and "I'm Not My Brother, I'm Me," and one is not allowed to forget for a moment that Freddie was Nat's brother. Actually, Freddie has an older and raspier voice which is natural, since he has outlived Nat and his piano style is more tied to 1950s jazz such as Red Garland than to swing. This fairly definitive CD from Freddie Cole does give one a strong sampling of his talents.
