Nathaniel Adams Coles (March 17, 1919 – February 15, 1965), known professionally as Nat King Cole, was an American singer who first came to prominence as a leading jazz pianist. He was widely noted for his soft, baritone voice, which he used to perform in big band and jazz genres and which he used to become a major force in popular music for 3 decades producing many hit songs.
Silky soul crooner Nat King Cole wore a sleek straight conk, with typically one, small section finger waved.
In today’s OF spotlight we celebrate the 93rd birthday of Nat King Cole (March 17, 1919 - 1965) - smooth crooner and sharp dresser…
Nat King Cole, Unforgettable (1954) The album's title says it all. Songs like the title track, Mona Lisa, Too Young. Just fabulous
"I'm a musician at heart, I know I'm not really a singer. I couldn't compete with real singers. But I sing because the public buys it." - Nat King Cole

12/10/2012: Louis Armstrong grew up very poor and celebrating Christmas with the usual trimmings was out of the question. He trimmed his first Christmas tree at the age of 40 and loved it so much that he took it on tour with him for a month. His wife tells the story: Click for the whole story it won't fit on pinterest.
There are no guarantees in life, but this comes close. If you want to smile and feel good for a few minutes, listen to Louis Armstrong sing "What A Wonderful World." This classic gets my vote for the "most hopeful song" of all-time!

Influential African American musician~Louis Armstrong, nicknamed Satchmo or Pops, was an American jazz trumpeter and singer from New Orleans, Louisiana.He is one of the most influential jazz artists of all time.(en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Louis_Armstrong)
Coming to prominence in the 1920s as an "inventive" cornet and trumpet player, Armstrong was a foundational influence in jazz, shifting the focus of the music from collective improvisation to solo performance. With his instantly recognizable deep and distinctive gravelly voice, Armstrong was also an influential singer, demonstrating great dexterity as an improviser, bending the lyrics and melody of a song for expressive purposes

Louis Armstrong (August 4, 1901 – July 6, 1971) was an American jazz trumpeter and singer from New Orleans. Popular in the 1920s as an "inventive" trumpet/cornet player, Armstrong was a foundational influence in jazz, shifting the focus of the music from collective improvisation to solo performance. With his staple gravelly singing voice, Armstrong was also one of the first popular black entertainers to "cross over", whose race was secondary to his music in a segregated America. #blackhistory

Louis Armstrong (1901-1971), nicknamed Satchmo or Pops, was an American jazz trumpeter and singer from New Orleans, Louisiana. Coming to prominence in the 1920s as an "inventive" trumpet and cornet player, Armstrong was a foundational influence in jazz. He was one of the first truly popular African-American entertainers to "cross over", whose skin-color was secondary to his music in an America that was severely racially divided.
Louis Armstrong was jazz's first superstar. Satchmo's explosive creativity defied conventions of early New Orleans jazz; he was a charismatic showman and dazzling trumpet player who was, literally, too good for his band. His performances were largely responsible for shifting the focus from the group to the soloist, and he was also quite an innovator when it came to scat. Perhaps most importantly, his acceptance by the social elite helped popularize jazz across racial and social boundaries.

Louis Armstrong, Billie Holiday, and Barney Bigard in New Orleans (1947, dir. Arthur Lubin) New Orleans featured Holiday’s only major film role. Holiday had several musical numbers in the film, however, she was unhappy that her role was that of a maid. In her autobiography, she wrote: “I thought I was going to play myself in it. I thought I was going to be Billie Holiday doing a couple of songs in a nightclub setting and that would be that. I should have known better. When I saw th

Gloomy Sunday - Billie Holiday_Dylan - “Something was calling to me to come in and I entered, walked along the long, narrow bar to where the jazz cats were playing in the back on a raised platform. They played jazz ballads, stuff like “Time on My Hands” and “Gloomy Sunday.” The singer reminded me of Billy Eckstine.”
Billie Holiday's version of Gloomy Sunday was released in 1941. The song was stated to be associated with suicides and was banned on the radio due to its depressing state. I chose this song because it fits the ideal category of a song related to sorrow and death.
Gloomy Sunday - Billie Holiday - "Dreaming, I was only dreaming / I wake and I find you asleep / In the deep of my heart, dear Darling I hope / That my dream never haunted you / My heart is tellin' you / How much I wanted you / Gloomy Sunday..."

"There's no excuse for the young people not knowing who the heroes and heroines are or were." — Nina Simone • photo uncredited • date unknown
Nina Simone "Feeling Good" 1965 , was written by Anthony Newley and Leslie Bricusse for the musical "The Roar of the Greasepaint – The Smell of the Crowd."
Eunice Kathleen Waymon (21 February 1933 – 21 April 2003), better known by her stage name Nina Simone, was an American singer-songwriter, pianist, arranger, and civil rights activist widely associated with jazz music. Simone aspired to become a classical pianist while working in a broad range of styles including classical, jazz, blues, soul, folk, rnb, gospel, and pop.
Nina Simone/ Feeling Good One of my favorites. Love the movie Point of no Return also had this song in its soundtrack.
Nina Simone was one of the most gifted vocalists of her generation, and also one of the most eclectic. Simone was a singer, pianist, and songwriter who bent genres to her will rather than allowing herself to be confined by their boundaries; her work swung back and forth between jazz, blues, soul, classical, R, pop, gospel, and world music, with passion, emotional honesty, and a strong grasp of technique as the constants of her musical career.
