HighNote CD 7168
Music Maestro Please
Freddy's previous HighNote CD Because of You: Freddy Cole Sings Tony Bennett (HighNote HCD 7156) was a Grammy Awards Ballot Finalist for Album of the Year, Record of the Year and Best Jazz Vocal Album. Freddy Cole's latest CD continues his family's rich musical dynasty which includes his brother, icon Nat 'King' Cole and Grammy Award-winning niece, Natalie. As Rex Reed of the New York Daily News pointed out, "Freddy Cole has moved into the front ranks of Jazz-oriented night-club performers with a style and a musical sophistication that is uniquely his own". The great pianist, Bill Charlap plays the role of musical partner rather than respectful accompanist as he and Freddy join in a meeting of the minds. Charlap and the rhythm section seem to revel in the chance to fill out the mood that Freddy establishes and it's evident that all those involved had fun while they recorded it--which creates a best-of-all-worlds situation.
With Bill Charlap- piano; Peter Washington- bass; Kenny Washington- drums.
