    Straighten Up and Fly Right
    A Tribute to Nat King Cole
    featuring
    Ramsey Lewis, piano & John Pizzarelli, guitar

    NEA Jazz Master pianist Ramsey Lewis and guitarist-vocalist John Pizzarelli have crafted a tribute to the legendary Nat King Cole whose smoky, smooth vocals took over the 1950s airwaves with his hit "Straighten Up and Fly Right" and followed with such hits as “Unforgettable” and “Mona Lisa.” Both Lewis and Pizzarelli were greatly influenced by Cole’s sophisticated cool jazz and Pizzarelli states, “I’ve always said in my concerts that Nat King Cole is why I do what I do,” but adds, “We aren’t trying to copy him. His sound was singular and inspired. I’ve always said that we’re an extension, a 21st century version of what that group was.”
