Nat King Cole -- March 17, 2019
Nat King Cole was born 100 years ago today, on 17-March-1919.  I was watching television one day in 1965 and an announcement came on saying that Nat King Cole had died.  I went to the kitchen and told my mother that Old King Cole had died.

His music was not popular when I was growing up.  I didn't like arrangements with lots of strings.  Later I heard some of  his early stuff with the King Cole Trio and discovered that he was good.
