Nat King Cole was a pretty fair jazz piano player, but it was his rich, warm, and smoothly elegant vocal style that made him into an icon. The standard single-disc edition contains 22 classic Cole performances, while this two-CD Deluxe edition adds 14 rare and/or previously unreleased tracks, including four never-before-heard vintage songs and previously unissued alternate takes of the Cole standards "Straighten Up And Fly Right", "Unforgettable", Mona Lisa", "The Christmas Song", and "(I Love You) For Sentimental Reasons" taken from the Nat King Cole Story sessions. Also featured are "Ain't She Sweet" and "What to Do", recorded in 1954, both of which find Cole trading vocals with his daughters Carole and Natalie, whose cross-generational 1991 duet version of "Unforgettable" helped to introduce her father to a new generation of listeners.
