Ol’ King Cole
With Respect to Nat…
…Ol’ King Cole was born out of exactly that. A love of the great music of Nat King Cole’s early drum-less trio which was active 1943-1950.
Performing the tunes of the great trio and other artists of the era Ol’ King Cole is lead by Wellington based Pianist & Vocalist Louis Thompson-Munn. Award winning Jazz Guitarist Callum Allardice joins him alongside Wellington City Shake-em-on-Downers Bassist, Bert Hendo.
The trio is formidable. Humour and a great sense of banter is the essence of what makes this band a great enjoyment to behold. Great tunes, honest and humble from the time they came from, and a great spirit of performance – from a time where there was no iPod, no Spotify, just musicians in a room making sweet sounds for other humans.
