Nat King Cole’s collaborations with the Count Basie Orchestra and the Stan Kenton Orchestra (all of which are included on this CD) found him mostly sticking to singing but enjoying the jazz-oriented backgrounds. He first met up with Kenton in 1950, recording the memorable “Orange Colored Sky” and starring on piano during the instrumental “Jambo.” They had a reunion in 1960-1961, cutting a remake of “Orange Colored Sky” and two more poppish songs. The matchup with Basie showcased Cole purely as a singer in 1958; Gerald Wiggins took Basie’s place at the keyboards. One of Cole’s better vocal sessions, he is in top form on a variety of standards (particularly on “The Late, Late Show” and “Welcome to the Club”); pity he did not sit in with the band on piano. This CD is recommended for its rare examples of Nat King Cole as a big-band singer.
