Nicolas Bearde - I Remember you - the Music of Nat King Cole - Jazz Singer - Oakland, California Event Location: Smoke Jazz Club, New York, NY Event Type: Album release 5th October 2019
NY Jazz Critic review... Jazz singer/pianist NatKing Cole would have turned 101 on Mar. 17th. 55 years after his death from lung cancer at 45, he continues to influence many vocalists, including Northern California-based Nicolas Bearde, who pays tribute on "I Remember You: The Music of Nat King Cole." This CD is by no means a carbon copy of Cole’s classic ‘40s, ‘50s or early ‘60s output. The arrangements tend to favor postbop and Bearde’s vocal style combines jazz and R&B elements. One can hear Cole in his singing, but also inspiration from vocalists ranging from Johnny Hartman and Stevie Wonder to Ray Charles and Donny Hathaway. Bearde acknowledges Cole’s jazz-oriented trio of the late ‘30s-40s with soulful performances of Cole’s “Straighten Up and Fly Right” and Mitchell Parish’s “Sweet Lorraine”, but doesn’t try to emulate the combination of piano, acoustic bass and guitar for which that group was known. A memorable tribute to Cole's legacy.
