November 30, 1943 The Nat King Cole Trio is recording Straighten Up and Fly Right.
I love Nat King Cole because initially he was known as one of the greatest jazz pianists and then he started singing and now the masses only think of him of as a beautiful crooner!
I decided late in my professional career that I wanted to sing. I’ve always loved playing for great singers and one day I said “I want to sing,” so now I’m a singer/pianist as opposed to only a piano player!
Saw my mom today in Arizona. She is doing great and tomorrow we’re going to take her out to a fair near our hotel with Claudia’s brother and his kids, and for some reason there are hot air balloons across the street right now, so Claudia and I are going to explore!
Straighten Up and Fly Right!
