Released:
Label: Capitol Records
This was Nat Cole's first concept album, a 1953 ballad masterwork with arranger Nelson Riddle. Cole's voice was more than smoky: he floats above the fray in a state of romantic rapture without truly becoming emotionally disengaged. While Sinatra's method approach exposed every dark corner in a torch song, Cole concentrates on the good times before love went wrong on peerless downers such as "Autumn Leaves" and "There Will Never Be Another You." This set is the apex of the Cole/Riddle collaboration -- just contrast the distinct approaches of "Let's Fall in Love" and "This Can't Be Love."
