Nat King Cole is widely considered one of the most influential musical personalities in United States history.  Born in Montgomery, Alabama in 1919, he moved to Chicago Illinois at the age of 4.  Nat began formal musical training at the age of 12 when he took lessons in jazz, gospel Music, and even classical pieces from composers like Bach and Rachmaninoff.

    Nat started his performing career with his brother Eddie in the mid 1930’s.  Cole later went on to form the Nat Kin Cole Trio and performed at many night clubs in the Los Angeles area.  His singing career took off with the release of the recording “Straighten Up and Fly Right” in 1943.  After selling more than 500,000 copies of the recording, Nat started to sing with full orchestras.  He recorded some of his biggest hits in the late 40’s with tunes such as “The Christmas Song,” “Nature Boy,” “Mona Lisa,” and the famous “Unforgettable.”
