Although it would have been interesting to hear Nat King Cole play some piano and perhaps accompany a vocal by George Shearing instead of exclusively the other way around, this session was a big success. Cole is in prime form on such tunes as "September Song," "Pick Yourself Up," and "Serenata. Shearing's accompaniment is tasteful and lightly swinging, and the string arrangements help to accentuate the romantic moods. Nat King Cole, George Shearing.

Nat Cole's velvet voice sounds even better with the rhythmic spice of Shearing's quintet, plus strings and percussion. The numbers on this 1961 album are all superb examples of classic American song, by such composers as Ellington, Kern and Matt Dennis, and each one is given a fresh and original treatment by arranger Ralph Carmichael. Nat King Cole and George Shearing are at their very best on this classic 1962 top ten chart album. A personal favourite is their chart hit "Let There Be Love" but all fifteen tracks on this superb album can be classed as listening highlights. I just about wore out the vinyl album through constant playing when I bought it almost 50 years ago, and already I look like doing the same with the CD album. This is a wonderful album.
