High Note, 2013, CD
Instrument: Male Vocals
Jazz Ruler Type: Ballads, Blues
O’s Notes: Nat had the brighter star but Freddy sure has longevity! We’re speaking about the Cole brothers with Freddy consistently releasing annual reminders of his grace and prowess. This and That is his latest endeavor featuring a dozen fresh classics that are good listening, balanced entertainment. There are old classics as well as lesser know tunes that instantly feel as good and the others. In addition to Cole’s warm baritone, we hear from a band that includes Bootsie Barnes (sax), Randy Napoleon (g) and John Di Martino (p) making this yet another CD that can keep a spot in the changer for an appreciable period of time.
