Freddy Cole Live at Blues Alley

November 26, 2018

Blues Alley presents Freddy Cole December 6-9, 2018.

Cole doesn't apologize for sounding like his brother, Nat "King" Cole. There are certain unmistakable similarities. He plays piano and sings and performs live with guitar and upright bass, just like Nat. Yet his voice is raspier, smokier, jazzier even. But he has emerged from the awesome shadow cast by his elder brother. In truth, his phrasing is far closer to that of Frank Sinatra or Billie Holiday than that of his brother and his timing swings a little more. His vocals - suave, elegant, formidable, and articulate - are among the most respected in jazz. Cole's career continues to ascend as he has moved into the front ranks of America's homegrown art form with a style and musical sophistication all his own.

"Freddy has an impeccable sense of swing … he is, overall, the most maturely expressive male jazz singer of his generation, if not the best alive," The New York Times.
