    Before achieving international pop stardom in the 50's, Nat King Cole enjoyed considerable success fronting his own trio in Hollywood. This video is a fascinating collection of early film shorts produced for theaters and television. Backed by such sidemen as Oscar Moore and Irving Ashby, bassists Johnny Miller and Joe Comfort or Latin percussionist Jack "Mr. Bongo" Costanzo, Cole was in peak artistic form in these true musical gems from his early West Coast period. Recommended to old-time fans and jazz enthusiasts alike, the music in this anthology sounds as enjoyable as ever.
