About Freddy Colee
The younger brother of Nat King Cole and uncle of Natalie Cole, singer/pianist Freddy Cole sounds a great deal like his celebrated sibling, yet has a personality of his own. Cole, whose vocals tend to be a bit darker and slightly rougher, began playing piano at five or six. A masterful vocalist and pianist, Freddy Cole captivates listeners with his elegant presence, subtle phrasing, and intimate singing style.

Having a family member already in the limelight has its mixed blessings, especially when it’s Nat King Cole. For much of his career, Freddy was overshadowed by the larger-than-life persona and legendary career of his brother. He had to struggle to find his own niche in the jazz world. As a result, Freddy did not find wider acclaim until the 1990s. He is now recognized for what he is himself – one of the greatest song stylists in today’s jazz world.

“Once upon a time, it was nearly impossible to listen to Freddy Cole without being reminded of his elder brother. … More recently, as Freddy’s baritone has become raspier, the ghost of Nat has grown continuously faint. Indeed, throughout this gorgeously supple set, captured two years ago at Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola in Lincoln Center, Freddy is entirely freed of fraternal echoes. A priceless quality of Nat’s does, however, remain.” – Christopher Loudon, Jazz Times, May 2009
