22 tracks (including the bonus track) performed by one of the greatest voices of the 20th century. Despite the early hiccups in his career, mostly his unacceptability because of his colour, he is now ranked alongside Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Bing Crosby. The warm rich tones make him a perfect balladeer, although his initial success came as a Jazz performer, with the Nat King Cole Trio.
The memorable `When I Fall In Love`, `Unforgettable` and `Mona Lisa` are all included. The arrangements and his song styling make his recordings as relevant today as they were 60 years ago. Indeed occasionally, his music often pops up as background music to TV adverts. This is a collection to be appreciated and enjoyed, although calling it `Ultimate` is unfortunate, for example where is `Those Lazy Hazy Crazy Days Of Summer`?
