Nat King Cole Classics: Just Tracks (Karaoke CDG) urban/R&B. Karaoke CDG. Published by Pocket Songs (PS.JTG193).
Sing the hits of jazz icon Nat King Cole! Cole first came to prominence as a leading jazz pianist, then switched his emphasis to singing. He frequently sang inbetween his instrumental pieces and soon he was inundated with requests for his vocal numbers. His first mainstream vocal hit was his 1943 recording of one of his own compositions, Straighten Up and Fly Right, based on a black folk tale that his father had used as a theme for a sermon. It sold over 500,000 copies and proved that folk-based material could appeal to a wide audience. Cole began recording and performing more pop-oriented material for mainstream audiences and scored huge success with songs like The Christmas Song, Too Young and Unforgettable, all of which appear on this incredible 18-song karaoke collection.
Each JTG album contains background tracks only. CDG discs can be played on a regular CD player but require a CDG player to see the graphics.
