Nat King Cole was the only challenger to Frank Sinatra's role as America's premier singer. It's certainly not difficult to hear why with his jazz leanings, his blues undertones and a voice as smooth as silk, he appealed to just about everyone. The man who once said, "Critics don't buy records. They get ‘em free," was a 20th century great who left us with one of the most wonderful recorded legacies ranging from pure jazz to sublimely romantic ballads. Originally released in 1954, Unforgettable is a supple early collection of the latter including the title cut, "Portrait of Jennie," "Mona Lisa," and "I Love You (For Sentimental Reasons)." Long out of print, this release serves as the next installment in Capitol Records' 75th Anniversary Collection: Vinyl Reissue Program.
