Nat King Cole


Nat King Cole Holiday AlbumThe holidays are always a big deal around my household.  Gifts and whatnot have never been the focus, but decorating, being with family, listening to holiday music, eating good food, and having good drinks has always been a staple.  Starting with my Great Grandmother, the importance of the holidays spread down through the ranks and continues to be relevant even after her passing.

For whatever reason, holiday music has always put me in the mood for the holidays.  If I am feeling down or overburdened with work I always pop in Nat king Cole’s holiday albums and it brightens my day.  “The Christmas Song” is my favorite of his, but there are so many to enjoy throughout the holidays.

Check out modern duet of “The Christmas Song” featuring Nat King Cole and his daughter Natalie Cole:

Nat King Cole: Nat King Cole was born in 1919 and came to prominence as a leading Jazz Pianist.  His popularity grew due to his soft baritone and enigmatic personality.  He was one of the first African Americans to host a variety hour.  He composed and recorded dozens and dozens of records throughout his career, and continues to maintain mainstream popularity even fifty-years after his death.
