Nat King Cole: Breeze Artist for April

We’re reserving the entire month of April for one of the greatest icons in music history, the incomparable Nat King Cole.  With of the most amazing and recognizable voices of all-time, Nat Cole’s place in music history is among the very, very best with countless recordings identified as classics and his album output on the Capitol label contain some of the most celebrated records of the 1950’s and 60’s. And that just scratches the surface of a discussion on Nat King Cole who’s life was cut tragically short when he left us at the young age of 45 in 1965.

Steve Tyrell Breeze Artist for March

It’s a salute to Steve Tyrell in March as our Breeze Artist of The Month. Tyrell’s 1999 album A New Standard is often cited as the one that started a revival of the Great American Songbook in the 21st Century.  To date Tyrell has now released 12 albums and is a popular concert attraction in some of the best venues around the world. Steve’s recording of The Way You Look Tonight from the romantic comedy Father of The Bride is one of the definitive versions of that iconic song.
