Joe Bourne and Trio presents
“Remembering Mr. Cole”
A tribute to Nat King Cole
If you close your eyes and let the soft, elegant music envelope you, it will be as though Nat King Cole himself has stepped up to the microphone when Joe Bourne claims the music. Joe Bourne has been winning over music fans for years with his smooth, soft baritone voice, perfectly emulating the legendary Nat King Cole with the same quiet dignity, style, and sophistication.
When Joe Bourne takes the stage, his audience is transported back to 1956 when Cole was the first African- American performer to host his own television series. Singing Nat’s ever-popular and Unforgettable tunes of the 40’s and 50’s, Joe incomparably preserves the memory of this remarkable artist, and his brilliant technique brings the soul of Nat King Cole to life once again. Accompanied by a trio consisting of Nat’s original sound –
piano, bass and guitar – (Sly Slipetsky Piano/ Scott Black, Bass / and Matt Mitchell, Guitar) using arrangements transcribed from the original recordings, and is accompanied by an evocative, educational narration. Presented are swinging and sophisticated arrangements of songs like: Orange Colored Sky, Walking My Baby Back Home, Paper Moon, Sweet Lorraine, Mona Lisa, Nature Boy, When I fall In Love, Route 66, Unforgettable and many more.
