Recorded shortly after Nat King Cole’s death, pianist Oscar Peterson takes vocals on all but one of the dozen rnselections, sounding almost exactly like Cole. Peterson, who rarely ever sang, is very effective on the well-rounded program whether being rnbacked by a big band (arranged by Manny Albam) on half of the selections, or recreating both the spirit of the Nat King Cole Trio and his own rngroup of the late ‘50s during a reunion with guitarist Herb Ellis and basssist Ray Brown. rnrnrnThough he made vocal recordings in the early 1950s, Oscar Peterson would seldom sing later in his career. His reluctance was caused by something rnthat would deter few others: his voice sounded remarkably like Nat "King" Cole\'s. It\'s a talent that dovetails with Peterson\'s piano playing and rnshared roots to make this tribute, recorded in 1965 after Cole\'s death, especially effective. For seven of the tracks, Peterson reassembles his rngreat trio, including bassist Ray Brown and guitarist Herb Ellis, a group originally modeled on Cole\'s trios of the 1940s. It\'s a wonderful mating rnof approach and material, a group that can swing both mightily and lightly, and which does so superbly on such tunes as "Gee, Baby, Ain\'t I Good rnto You," "Straighten Up and Fly Right," and the instrumental "Easy Listening Blues." The other five tracks feature an all-star big band rn(the pianist is Hank Jones), with arrangements by Manny Albam. Peterson pays tribute to the popular vocalist of the \'50s, singing Cole\'s rnsignature "Unforgettable" and the witty "Calypso Blues" with evident regard for the original, but with his own distinctive phrasing.
