A “virtuosic marvel,” (SJ Mercury) gypsy guitarist, vocalist, and Bay Area native George Cole pays tribute to the music of singer and pianist Nat “King” Cole in a celebration of what would have been his 99th birthday, accompanied by a superb trio that echoes King Cole’s signature piano/guitar/bass format.

Deeply versed in the “jazz manouche” style pioneered by guitar legend Django Reinhardt in the 1930s, George Cole is the curator and director of violin and guitar for the annual Esprit de Django et Stéphane Festival at The Freight and Salvage in Berkeley, though his versatility and musicality have led to collaboration with iconic singer Keely Smith, bluegrass giant David Grisman, and rock mainstays Joe Walsh and Chris Isaak. For Cole Swings Cole, the guitarist explores the timeless tunes made famous by Nat “King” Cole, from Cole’s signature compositions like “Straighten Up and Fly Right” to his indelible approach to the Great American Songbook, infusing them with his masterful style.
