JAZZ.FM91 presents Jazz Lives: A Century of Nat King Cole
JAZZ.FM91 ANNOUNCES THE JAZZ LIVES 2018 LINEUP AND THEME: A CENTURY OF NAT 'KING' COLE. -- JAZZ.FM91 begins the celebration of Nat 'King' Cole's centenary with the 14th annual JAZZ LIVES, the station’s premier fundraising concert, on Wednesday, April 11th at 7:30pm in the Telus Centre for Performance and Learning at Koerner Hall (273 Bloor St. West, Toronto, ON).
Nat ‘King’ Cole was the consummate professional musician with impeccable vocal delivery. As a pianist, he was extraordinary and the perfect accompanist to his own singing. Cole personified musical elegance, and decades after his death in 1965, his musical influence is still widely felt. On April 11th, we have curated an evening to pay homage to this iconic 20th-century musician.
