Straighten Up and Fly Right:

The Nat King Cole Tribute featuring Ramsey Lewis and John Pizzarelli

Join jazz legend, pianist Ramsey Lewis, and world-renowned guitarist and singer John Pizzarelli as they pay tribute to a musician whose smooth vocals remain synonymous with mid-century sophistication: Nat King Cole. As a singer, Cole was called “the best friend a song ever had,” but at heart, he was a gifted jazz performer, whose chart-topping hits often belied his piano technique. Ramsey and Pizzarelli have crafted a tribute to the titan of fifties vocal pop, from his hits to those singular cool jazz tracks that have influenced their own illustrious careers.
