"I guess I just get to the heart of people's feelings, that's all". Nat King Cole

The stellar singers and musicians who brought you the award winning show "Blue Eyes - the music of Frank Sinatra" have come together again to present some of the timeless music of Nat King Cole in a new show called "Unforgettable - a celebration of Nat King Cole".

This tribute to the music of the velvet-toned Cole stars some of Wellington's hottest jazz musicians performing vibrant interpretations of the best loved Cole standards.

This dynamic show includes the romance and charm of signature melodies such as "I Love You For Sentimental Reasons", "When I Fall In Love" and "The Very Thought of You". Jazz and blues lovers will enjoy wistful and melancoly tunes like 'smile", "Boulevard of Broken Dreams" and "Autumn Leaves". Then there's the fun and foot-tapping excellence of the Trio hits including "Hit That Jive Jack", 'straighten Up And Fly Right" and "Frim Fram Sauce".

Andrew London (of "Hot Club Sandwich" acclaim);
Dan Teka (whose authentic crooner style has made his "Play Me" album a hit);
April Phillips (actress and chanteuse whose ! rst album has raised over $9,000 for the Make-A-Wish Foundation);
James Cameron (smooth singer and bass player with "The Velox Brothers" and "HCS");
AND FEATURING critcally acclaimed musicians Norman Meehan (Piano), Lance Philip (Drums), and Nils
Olsen (Saxophone).

The calibre of performers coming together in Wellington's historic Old St Pauls will make this show "HOT." The rafters will resound with magic sounds created by singers and musicians whose license to perform the "old masters of music" has been con! rmd by the applause of their previous shows, their own successful recordings, and their regular appearances on stage and screen. Music Lovers will not want to miss this event.

"I'm an interpreter of stories. When I perform it's like sitting down at my piano and telling fairy stories."
