Legendary jazz singer and pianist Nat King Cole was born a hundred years ago, on St. Patrick’s Day 1919. John Pizzarelli has often said that Nat was the reason for his playing the kind of music he does. His just-released album, “For Centennial Reasons,” is the third one that John has dedicated to his musical idol. This week, John & Jessica feature songs from the album, as well as songs by Nat himself and music by other artists who have been influenced by the great Nat Cole.
