Talent America's 2001 "Performer of the Year" Brian De Lorenzo swings into The Metropolitan Room to celebrate the artistry and remarkable career of one of America's favorite singers, Nat King Cole. De Lorenzo presents songs for which Mr. Cole is well known - songs such as "Nature Boy," "Mona Lisa," and "Don't Get Around Much Anymore" - plus stories and anecdotes about Mr. Cole's personal and professional lives. De Lorenzo will also interweave memories and anecdotes from his own experiences of Cole's music.
2013 marks the 65th anniversary of the release of "Nature Boy;" the 70th anniversary of the Nat King Cole Trio's signing with Capitol Records ("The House That Nat Built"); and the 50th anniversary of Cole's recording of "Those Lazy-Hazy-Crazy Days of Summer." As we approach the 50th anniversary of the passing of this iconic performer, De Lorenzo feels that Mr. Cole deserves to be honored for his talent as a singer and for his importance to entertainment and race relations in the 20th Century.
There are good shows and there are great shows, but once in a blue moon you're at a cabaret and you know something extraordinary is going on. De Lorenzo is at the top of his game.
