    NKC has always been one of my favorite singers. So smooth, so great, so perfect. Tonight's PBS special on him was a good overview of his career yet too short. His career and life really demands the Mr. Burns, king of PBS documentaries treatment.
    Can there ever be a better rendition of Tenderly? YouTube - Tenderly - Nat King Cole with Oscar Peteron Trio

    he even had the good sense to feature rockabilly kids The Sparkeltones on his show YouTube - The Sparkletones 1956 on The Nat King Cole Show

    and the luscious Peggy Lee YouTube - Nat King Cole NBC Show -4-

    There's too much to be said about NKC. A giant,an enormous talent and someone that's left his musical imprint on the playlist of my life. Watch the show on yr local pbs station.

    I agree that Nat King Cole was one of the best.
