The biography of Nat King Cole by Alain Gerber , illustrated by Alexis Dormal and accompanied by 2 compact discs.

Nat King Cole is one of the first black-American artists to achieve such international notoriety. He appeared 78 times on the hit parade from 1944 to 1964 with immortal songs like “ Pretend , Mona Lisa , Besame Mucho , Autumn Leaves , Embraceable You , Ungorgettable , Nature Boy , I Love You For Sentimental Reasons ...

He is also an essential figure in jazz , admirer of the rhythms of Earl Hines and inspiration for numerous pianists: Erroll Garner , Oscar Peterson , Red Garland , Bill Evans and many others. His success as a popular singer (he sold more than 60 million records) eclipsed the brilliant jazz pianist who revealed himself with the King Cole Trio.

The two CDs that accompany this comic reveal both the popular singer and the jazz pianist.
