Several generations of listeners around the world have memories of some of the most famous songs of which Nat King Cole left us unforgettable recordings, like Mona Lisa, Smile, Blue Gardenia, Ballerina and many others... The present box set obviously includes these titles. However, it is also intended to recall, or to make people discover, beyond the extraordinary velvet of his voice, the true dimension of an artist who was much more than a "simple" crooner. Nat King Cole was one of the great men of the jazz piano, a master who left his mark on most of his peers. On the first CD we hear the popular singer accompanied by various orchestras, he is at the piano throughout the other two; singing at the head of his trio in the second, exclusively instrumentalist in the third, according to various formats from trio to large orchestra.
