Before achieving international pop stardom in the 1950s, Nat King Cole enjoyed considerable success fronting his own trio in Hollywood. This video presents a fascinating collection of early film shorts produced for theater and television. Backed by such sidemen as Oscar Moore and Irving Ashby, bassists Johnny Miller and Joe Comfort, or Latin percussionist Jack "Mr. Bongo" Costanzo, Cole is shown in peak artistic form - in these true musical gems from his early West Coast period. Recommended to old-time fans and jazz enthusiasts alike, the music in this anthology sounds as marvelous as ever.
