Forget the '50s's classic '40s King Cole Trio...groove to this! Pt. 1

I'm a big fan of Nat King Cole Trio recordings from the '40s....I have a LOT of it in my collection. A friend and I were talking the other day, and he mentioned that he found a lot of Cole's music to be a bit saccarine. He was mostly only familiar with his 1950s output (Mona Lisa, etc.....). This giant list that will be going up in several parts will hopefully change his opinion.....enjoy. There are many duplicates in these lists, but they are alternate takes, and different recorded versions of the same tunes.....If you have any questions or corrections, please let me know. I know I could add a lot more to my lists in terms of studio info, dates and bio information, and I can add it, if folks are finding how I post a bit confusing or annoying,....generally I am posting big lists on here from my collections, and I tend to just focus on getting the tunes up. If you like the music, and it's your thing, most of the time you can find a lot of bio info online.....I apologize to anyone finding my posted info a little sparse.....again, let me know. Thanks.

So, here's the list already:    Nat King Cole Trio....Pt. 1
