Nat King Cole – The Artist

Nathaniel Adams Coles (1919 – 1965), known professionally as Nat King Cole, was an American singer and jazz pianist. He recorded over 100 songs that became hits on the pop charts. His trio was the model for small jazz ensembles that followed. Cole also acted in films and on television and performed on Broadway. He was the first African-American man to host an American television series. He was the father of singer-songwriter Natalie Cole (1950–2015). Cole recorded some of his best hit singles during the 1960s, including “Let There Be Love” with George Shearing in 1961, the country-flavored hit “Ramblin’ Rose” in August 1962, “Dear Lonely Hearts”, “That Sunday, That Summer” and “Those Lazy-Hazy-Crazy Days of Summer”. He performed in many short films, sitcoms, and television shows and played W. C. Handy in the film St. Louis Blues (1958). He also appeared in The Nat King Cole Story, China Gate, and The Blue Gardenia (1953).

When I Fall In Love – The Song

‘When I Fall In Love is a popular song written by Irving Gordon and produced by Lee Gillette. The song’s original working title was “Uncomparable”; however, the music publishing company asked Gordon to change it to “Unforgettable”. The song was published in 1951. It has been covered by many artists but probably the most popular version of the song was this recorded by Nat King Cole in 1951 from his album Unforgettable (1952), with an arrangement written by Nelson Riddle. It was released on an EP in 1960.

The Heart – The Shape

This record has been cut into the silhouette  of a loving heart. The heart shape and its meaning has evolved over hundreds of years. Nowadays it means love but before the 13th and 14th centuries it was generally drawn for decorative purposes. People at that time thought of our hearts as books of memory and believed feelings for the beloved were somehow written on your heart.
