Ramsey Lewis and John Pizzarelli: Nat King Cole Tribute – 4.4.15

Ramsey Lewis and John Pizzarelli: Nat King Cole Tribute – 4.4.15

Saturday, April 4 at 8pm – Hering Auditorium

Ramsey Lewis and John Pizzarelli have crafted a tribute to the titan of fifties vocal pop—Nat King Cole—from his hits to the well-loved tracks of sophisticated cool jazz.

Nat King Cole broke the pop barrier with his smoky, smooth vocals, stringing along a huge number of solid hits right after his first “Straighten Up And Fly Right” soared up the charts in 1943. As a singer, he was called “the best friend a song ever had,” and Ramsey Lewis and John Pizzarelli make his music live on.

“It’s a mark of how much Lewis understands what people want from a piece of music that he remains one of jazz’s most broadly popular figures, yet still holds on to an unshakeable degree of respectability.” —BBC
