Event description

Description

The Freddy Cole Quartet features masterful vocalist and pianist, Freddy Cole. Cole captivates listeners with his elegant presence, subtle phrasing, and intimate singing style. Although he has been charming audiences in the States and abroad for over 40 years, Freddy did not find wider acclaim until the 1990s. Having a family member already in the limelight has its mixed-blessings. For much of his career, Freddy was overshadowed by the larger-than-life persona and legendary career of his brother Nat King Cole. He had to struggle to find his own niche in the jazz. Today, Freddy Cole feels "blest" to be doing what he loves best -– telling stories through music, reaching people with his exuberant warmth and inexorable talent. We should consider ourselves equally as fortunate to hear more from this jazz great with the panache of Duke Ellington and a voice like "raw silk."

Freddy has an impeccable sense of swing… he is, overall, the most maturely expressive male jazz singer of his generation, if not the best alive.
-The New York Times

You simply don’t encounter phrasing as nonchalant yet polished as this anymore. It takes a lifetime to learn to make a lyric sound as colloquial as speech, yet as musical as an instrumental solo. Cole has spent his career mastering the art with the hushed intensity of his vocals and the silken beauty of his piano lines. – Chicago Tribune
