5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect Mix of Cole and Benson to please either fans or both!, 6 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Inspiration (A Tribute To Nat King Cole) (MP3 Download)
Its amazing how similar Benson's voice is to Nat King Cole. I never realised it until I heard him singing his songs in more the same tone as him. That being said, you can still tell its Benson and not Cole, which is great and he manages to show us how much of a fan he is, without being over-indulgent or losing track of the music.

Its basically doing the songs in the way the orchestra would do it for King Cole and then Benson comes in with his lovely tones and ad-libs the right amount, which is not much at all, in order to keep this tribute very close to how King Cole sang his songs.

The production is perfect, in keeping with the originals but also adding new things here and there.My favourite track is Unforgettable, because Benson does a smooth, jazzy, summery Samba vibe to it. He does the song for a lovely long time, with jazzy instruments in-between the breaks in chorus and verse and it sends chills down your spine.

I am a fan of both Kng Cole and Benson, though I am a fan of Benson more, and this did not disappoint me in any way, in fact it made me love both of them more.
