Music and Life of Nat King Cole: Straighten Up & Fly Right

Nat King Cole

Long before he crooned his way into the hearts of the world, Nat King Cole (1919-1965) was already recognized as one of the greatest pianists in the history of jazz.  In honor of the Cole centennial, this unique film presentation (featuring tons of rare footage not available on home video or youTube) looks at both sides of this unforgettable musician and entertainer through the lens of jazz and the blues.
