Nat King Cole was cool before it was cool to be cool. While he started out as a piano man, he will always be remembered for his velvet voice and smooth phrasing. Everyone loved to listen to Nat King Cole sing jazz, croon ballads, interpret pop songs, and swing with the big bands. He will also be remembered for being one of the first African Americans to host his own television variety show. Explore the world and musical legacy of Nat King Cole tonight at 9. Jazz awakes Monday through Friday at 8 p.m. on KJZZ.
