Nat 'King' Cole owed his stellar international reputation to his soft baritone, although before he started singing professionally he was already an accomplished jazz pianist. This album of his later vocal hits, from 'Unforgettable' to 'Mona Lisa' and 'Million-Dollar Baby' reveals a wonderful musician at work. A film star and idol of the 50s, he was feted by public and politicians alike, not least for his pioneering TV shows.

So we've chosen a selection of numbers from the great records of the day: Doris Day, Dean Martin, Nat King Cole and other stars singing songs like 'Whatever will be, will be', Unforgettable' and 'Memories are made of this'.
