Description
With novelties, ballads, signature songs, and curios, this career-spanning collection is a fine introduction to the myriad talents of Nat King Cole. "Shy Guy" and "Frim Fram Sauce" are early "soundies" (produced by a 1940's video device called a Panoram). Although it's all great stuff, the two most outstanding selections are his duet with Ella Fitzgerald on "Too Close for Comfort" (from his short-lived TV show) and a breathtaking, heartbreaking version of "Stardust," which appears to be from a Grammy broadcast and is introduced by Tony Curtis and Janet Leigh. Cole sings and plays the piano on tunes like "Walkin' My Baby Back Home" or is accompanied by his show orchestra ("I'm Gonna Sit Right Down and Write Myself a Letter"; "I've Grown Accustomed to Her Face"; "Do I Love You Because You're Beautiful?"; "Raintree County"). On the swinging "I Want You to be Happy," he's joined by a jazz ensemble that includes Illinois Jaquet on sax. The ballad "Because You're Mine" and Fats Domino's "Blueberry Hill" are two more highlights of the program, which ends with a slideshow of Cole with friends such as Harry Belafonte, Ella, Sinatra, Dean Martin, and Sammy Davis Jr.
