|Vocalist Nicolas Bearde
releases his 6th Jazz Album
In Celebration of Nat King Coles Centenary
San Francisco-based vocalist, Nicolas Bearde recently released “I Remember You: the Music of Nat King Cole”, embellished by a group of outstanding musicians to rave reviews from critics and jazz audiences worldwide.
“Silky, smooth jazz vocals…a superb tribute to “the King”
– Dick Metcalf of Contemporary Fusion
“These tracks cement Bearde’s place as an inheritor of Cole’s cool…he soothes and seduces…Bearde is a soulful sensation”
– Dan Bilawsky of All About Jazz
“Bearde’s warm and caramel-infused vocals offer fresh perspectives without losing any of the inherent romance and heartbreak of the Cole versions”
– Bill Buckley of SoulandJazz, UK
“Creamy and debonair, Bearde’s renditions move the music of Nat Cole into the 21st century in time with Cole’s 100th Birthday celebration” – Blogger
Building on Bearde’s 2016 high charting album “ Invitation”, this new release, produced and arranged largely by Josh Nelson ( long time pianist for the late Natalie Cole ) celebrates Nat King Cole’s 100th birthday. Besides pianists Nelson and Peter Horvath, Bearde teams with bassists Alex Boneham and Dan Feiszli, drummers Dan Schnelle, Lorca Hart and Jason Lewis and special guest artist, legendary tenor saxophonist, Eric Alexander, featured on 3 tracks, “That Sunday, That Summer”, “Funny (Not Much)” and “Thou Swell”.
Bearde is a master storyteller who breathes new life into Nat’s trove of enduring classics. Though the ten songs on this project are associated with Cole, Nelson’s fresh arrangements and Bearde’s rich, warm voice and supple phrasing offer new takes on these timeless songs. There is a certain elegance to his singing that makes the songs on “I Remember You: the Music of Nat King Cole”, with their updated and hip arrangements, as fresh and evocative as when there were originally performed.
TRACKS: I Remember You, That Sunday, That Summer, Funny ( Not Much), Sweet Lorraine, L-O-V-E, Thou Swell, The Rules of the Road, Straighten up and Fly Right, Tenderly, I Wish You Love
