The Freddy Cole Quartet

Tuesday, April 30, 2019
  |  7:30pm

Included In Season Tickets

Freddy Cole doesn’t apologize for sounding like his brother, Nat "King" Cole. There are certain unmistakable similarities. He plays piano, sings, and performs live with guitar and upright bass- just like Nat. Yet his voice is raspier, smokier, perhaps even jazzier. Freddy has emerged from the awesome shadow cast by his elder brother. His vocals—suave, elegant, formidable, and articulate—are among the most respected in jazz.  Cole’s  career continues to ascend as he’s moved into the front ranks of America’s homegrown art form, with a style and musical sophistication all his  own.

“Freddy has an impeccable sense of swing… he is, overall, the most maturely expressive male jazz singer of his generation, if not the best alive.” – The New York Times
