“The people who know nothing about music are the ones always talking about it.” Nathaniel Adams Coles, known professionally as Nat King Cole. An American jazz vocalist, Cole first came to prominence as a leading jazz pianist when he formed the Nat King Cole Trio. But most will remember him as a vocalist with a distinctively soft, baritone voice. Cole was one of the first African-Americans to host a television variety show.
