Nat King Cole’s ‘Unforgettable’ album remains a timeless classic of vocal jazz, arguably representing the high point of his incredible music. Nat King Cole was a crucial figure in the early success of Capitol Records – in fact, the Hollywood-based record company, which boasted an iconic tower shaped liked a stack of records, was often referred to as “the house that Nat built” in recognition of the Alabama-born singer and pianist’s role in establishing Capitol as a major force in the music industry during the 40s and 50s. It was Capitol’s co-founder, noted singer and songwriter Johnny Mercer, who was responsible for bringing Cole to the label, where he initially fronted his own popular combo, The King Cole Trio, before forging a solo career that would bring him international renown. No small part of that is thanks to the song ‘Unforgettable’.
