Berkeley, CA  September 21, 2017--The sound and style of the original Nat King Cole Trio recreated in a modern day jazz salute.
Cole Swings Cole is a vibrant and engaging show performed by the George Cole Trio with virtuoso jazz guitarist George Cole [guitar and vocals] Sir Richard Nelson Hall on piano, and Carla Kaufman on the upright bass. The show highlights songs from the original Nat King Cole Trio, Nat King Cole’s solo career, some of Nat's biggest hits, and selected songs from George Cole’s catalog. 
When George Cole was asked what provoked him to create the "Cole Swings Cole" show he commented; “My musical background as a rock & roll lead guitarist became greatly changed. I became inspired by the love both my parents had for the music of Nat King Cole. This caused me to re-evaluate and re-focus on music that gives new meaning and purpose to my career."
All songs have a heaping helping of impeccably executed guitar, piano, and upright bass. The show highlights some of Nat’s big hits of the forties, fifties, sixties, and Great American Songbook compositions. The George Cole Trio will create a night of nostalgia rendering iconic classics like “Unforgettable”,  “Mona Lisa”, “Nature Boy” and countless others. Timeless music perfect for the young and the young at heart!
This is a family-friendly show appropriate for all ages.

"Blending the fire of Reinhardt and Nat King Cole, George Cole bathes his compositions in the forgiving glow of nostalgic familiarity, adding a healthy dose of instrumental virtuosity to the equation" -Jeff Meirs- 12/30/11- Buffalo Evening News
