HASH(0x9016ef54) out of 5 stars "Trailblazer in the World of Jazz ... Nat King Cole ... Passport Video" 4 Oct. 2006
By J. Lovins - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Passport Video celebrates the career of Nathaniel Adams Coles, known professionally as Nat King Cole (March 17, 1919 - February 15, 1965) was a popular American singer, songwriter, and jazz pianist --- "THE UNFORGETTABLE NAT KING COLE" (2003) (50 mins/B&W) ... One of the most beloved vocalists of all time, Nat King Cole paved the way for all African-American entertainers that came after him --- His grand musical legacy is celebrated with this 18-song visual tribute that includes "Route 66," "Mona Lisa," "Stompin' at the Savoy," "Straighten up and Fly Right," "Nat's Song" performed by actor Obba Babatunde

On November 5, 1956, The Nat King Cole Show debuted on NBC-TV ... Initially begun as a 15 minute show on Monday night, the show was expanded to a half hour in July 1957 ... Nat's guest were Ella Fitzgerald and Harry Belafonte and many other close friends in the entertaiment field ... The Nat King Cole Show had a short run due to the lack of national sponsorship, companies such as Rheingold Beer assumed regional sponsorship of the show, but a national sponsor never appeared ... to bad this show had star quality, in the name of Nat King Cole.

Nat King Cole was on the Ed Sullivan show six times before his own show ran regularly in 1957. He appeared twice after his show ended, once in 1958 and once in 1961.

The last episode of The Nat King Cole Show aired December 17, 1957 --- Cole had survived for over a year, and it was he, not NBC, who ultimately decided to pull the plug on the show --- NBC and Nat had been operating at an extreme financial loss due to the lack of sponsorship his show received --- Cole quipped shortly after its demise, "Madison Avenue is afraid of the dark." --- once again enjoy those vintage performances just as they appeared decades ago in the small tube...meanwhile pick up your copy of "The Unforgettable Nat King Cole" from Amazon or Passport Video and relive those shows from Nat Cole the "King" of Jazz.

HASH(0x926eb060) out of 5 stars Lovely album 24 July 2013
By Glen R. Scutt - Published on Amazon.com

The beginning of the video, that includes some of Cole's earliest vocal recordings, is a real eye opener. We are used to his polished standard recordings of the 1950's. The earlier stuff may not be quite as smooth, but it sounds fresh and more interesting by comparison. I can not recall any videos that come any better than this one.

Nat was unforgettable. This presentation is not the best quality. But it's interesting nonetheless. I'm still looking for something better to remember this great singer by.
