A true legend of American music, Nat King Cole enjoyed a unique dual career: he was simultaneously one of the greatest pianists in all of jazz, a name to be mentioned alongside Art Tatum and Oscar Peterson, as well as the most successful male vocalists of his generation, whose records regularly outsold those of such colleagues as Frank Sinatra and Perry Como.

This event also doubles as a collection of rare and wonderful video performances by the legendary artist as well as a launch for host Will Friedwald’s monumental new biography, Straighten Up & Fly Right: The Life and Music of Nat King Cole, being published this month by Oxford University Press. Features such guest star duet partners as Ella Fitzgerald, Johnny Mercer, and Sammy Davis Jr.
