February 28 - Tribute to Nat King Cole - Presented by vocalist Kevin Whalum

Nat "King" Cole was a jazz pianist who rose to prominence in the 1940s as leader of the King Cole Trio. Considered an innovator on jazz piano, it was as a vocalist that he entered the national consciousness and became an enduring legend, with classics such as "Straighten Up and Fly Right," "Mona Lisa," "Unforgettable," and "The Christmas Song." In 1956, he became the first African American to host a national television show, and his popularity has endured undiminished to the present time. Vocalist extraordinaire Kevin Whalum leads a tribute to this modern jazz master.

The 2016 series is presented with support from The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee, Caterpillar Financial Services, and Peter & Anne Neff.

Jazz on the Move programs take place on a series of Sunday afternoons, and are free and open to the public. All performances are at 3:00 pm in the auditorium at the Frist Center for the Visual Arts, 919 Broadway, Nashville, Tenn.
