    Just happened to catch a special last night on PBS about Nat King Cole.What class and sophistication, something that's rarely seen these days. I was thoroughly entertained by his genuine musical talent and superb voice. I would have to say he had one of the best voices I've ever heard. His voice was so unique,pure,and always soothing.There was a sincerity about him that was so pure,almost hypnotic.He had all the talent and looks to be a superstar, but unfortunately he died too soon.If you've never heard Nat King Cole sing, I'd recommend listening to a copy of "Unforgettable" or "When I Fall In Love" just a few of his many huge hits.Another part of the show I enjoyed was seeing and hearing his very lovely and beautiful family.

    I agree, he's one of the best. My mom really likes him, probably her favorite singer, so when I was young I'd always hear Nat's music in our place. As a result I appreciate his smooth style.

    Geez, I almost made the same post a few weeks ago (on the best voices), and Nat King Cole was on the top of my list at that time [​IMG]

    One of my favorite movie scenes is Martin Sheen and Sissy Spacek waltzing in the headlight beams on the open prairie in BADLANDS to Nat King Cole's A BLOSSOM FELL. Absolute magic.
