The new Essential Jazz Classics label presents Nat King Cole’s Complete 1956 ‘After Midnight’ Sessions - with 4 bonus tracks. Appearing at a time when, for the general public, he was more of a singer and entertainer than a jazz pianist, this album was a reminder of Nat’s superlative skills as an instrumentalist. For the remainder of his successful career – which ended with his sudden death in 1965 due to lung cancer – he continued singing more and more, and playing less and less.

This splendid, primarily instrumental album was to be one of his last hits as a pianist (as opposed to a singer and entertainer), presenting the classic Nat King Cole & his Trio, plus several of his illustrious friends as guests : Harry Edison, Willie Smith, Juan Tizol & Stuff Smith The current edition contains the complete master takes in their original session order, allowing the listener to enjoy the music just as it was recorded and fully appreciate the collaboration between Cole’s magic and the horns. As a bonus, we present a 4-track session featuring Cole with the same rhythm section, the year before.
