Four years after her return to recording after a much-publicized battle with drug addiction, Natalie Cole found herself unexpectedly experiencing a virtual reinvention as a bestselling artist and performer, thanks to a pro... more »ject she had longed to do for many years. Unforgettable with Love was the soulful singer's way of paying tribute to her late, legendary father, Nat "King" Cole, and marked her label debut for Elektra Records. Cole, Elektra, and the album's producers--including then-husband Andre Fischer and Tommy LiPuma--were rewarded with a multiple-Grammy-winning set that sold an astonishing 5 million copies in the U.S. alone. Cole's selections varied from obvious choices like "Mona Lisa," "Nature Boy," "Route 66," and "Straighten Up and Fly Right"--all major hits for her father in the '50s--to more obscure parts of King Cole's repertoire, such as "Avalon" and "Non Dimenticar." The crowning glory was a "duet" with her father, electronically created using his original vocal, which helped expand Cole's audience dramatically and took her career to a new plateau. --David Nathan« less

A highly entertaining CD that covers Nat's greatest hits. The audio fidelity is excellent, Nelson Riddle's arrangements impeccable. What are you waiting for?

THE TITLE SAYS IT ALL!

"When Natalie Cole first launched her career, everyone was expecting her to sing her father Nat's songs, or to sing the type of music, he did later in his career: middle-of-the-road pop. Well, Natalie specifically steered clear of doing that because she wanted to prove that she could make it on her own, and desperately wanted to step out of her father's massive shadow. So she sang straight up R&B, as a disciple of the Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin. She established herself as a top vocalist during the mid '70s and into the '80s but not without some personal troubles.This CD, UNFORGETTABLE WITH LOVE, gives fans of both Natalie and her dad a treat. No doubt the world greatly misses Nat King Cole; we can't help but think of what would've happened had he lived. But to carry on his legacy is his daughter doing his songs now, even though at one time she didn't want to. But it was time! We might as well keep it in the family, right? Who else is more deserving of covering his material? And Natalie does a wonderful job, too. The technology used to make Natalie sing "Unforgettable" with her dad is nothing new now, but when the CD first came out, everyone was saying, "How did they do that?" And to this day, I get choked up just listening to that duet. Natalie covers 22 of her dad's hits on this CD, such as "That Sunday, That Summer" (another tear-jerker for me), "L-O-V-E", "Mona Lisa", "Thou Swell", "Nature Boy", "The Very Thought Of You" and "Our Love Is Here To Stay". Plus she does a medley of three of her dad's most romantic tunes: "(I Love You) For Sentimental Reasons", Tenderly" and "Autumn Leaves". Absolutely beautiful. Natalie, your dad would be proud. Well done, "Sweetie"!"
"Unforgettable" proves a memorable tribute

"Natalie Cole's pop albums always featured at least one jazzy, swinging track, so it came as no surprise when she decided, in 1991, to release an all-out tribute to her father, jazz-legend Nat "King" Cole, complete with full orchestra. It serves not only as a strong and fitting tribute to one of music's greatest figures, but as a perfect opportunity for Natalie Cole to expand her horizons...and her fan base.Let's be honest...they just don't write 'em like they used to, and therefore Natalie never had quite the chance to show off the grace and elegance of her voice as she does on the likes of "The Very Thought of You," "Mona Lisa," and "Our Love is Here to Stay." Producers Andre Fischer, Tommy Lipuma, and David Foster keep Natalie in superior arragements throughout, especially evident on "Too Young" and an exquisite rendition of "Lush Life." There's plenty of swing, too, however: "Paper Moon," "Route 66," and "L-O-V-E" are songs that couldn't be authentically pulled off by just any pop singer, but Natalie more than rises to the challenge. Furthermore the frantically-paced "Avalon" and the midtempo "Don't Get Around Much Anymore," the latter boasting a slick scat, are among the album's best tracks.But the finest moment comes at the finale: through the wonders of modern technology, Natalie is afforded the opportunity to sing with her father, digitally remastered here to gorgeous effect on the album's title track. Unfortunately, the practice inspired countless, less-appropriate knock-offs (even Natalie reprised the idea two albums later with far less impact) but here, Natalie's obvious love and affection for her father and his music come through tenfold, and we're treated to one of the most beautiful and moving moments in jazz. In summation, a talented daughter pays tribute to her legendary father, singing timeless classics admist top-notch arrangements traditional enough for purists to admire, but accessible enough for pop fans to discover and cherish. "Unforgettable" indeed."
Excellent Choices Make A Tribute Album Fit For A King

""Unforgettable" has influence and importance beyond being music's most famous father-daughter dance. Its just-enough contemporizing of some of music's most treasured standards opened many to pre-rock songs for the first time. It also raised not only Natalie's and her father's profile, but of their contemporaries (Louis Armstrong, Sinatra's "Duets" sets) to the point where romantic films like "Sleepless In Seattle" depended on their classic music.It came down to choices, and "Unforgettable" made all the right ones. Cole and producer Tommy LiPuma joined session musicians from Nat Cole's original recordings (at Capitol studios, yet), with more modern jazzmen like Joe Sample and John Pattitucci. She chose atmospheric arrangements from Michael Legrand, Johnny Mandel and David Foster. She chose her father's early, more swing/jazz/pop material ("Thou Swell," "Avalon," a sweet "Very Thought Of You") over countrified sing-a-longs like "Ramblin' Rose." And rather than repeat her father's warm vocal phrasing, Cole instead reached back to female jazz's Mount Rushmore (Ella, Dinah, Sarah, etc.) and even the sass of her early, R&B hits. The result is a set that comes closest in tone to the albums Nelson Riddle, Billy May, and Gordon Jenkins arranged at Capitol for that label's legendary pop singers (Cole, Sinatra, Ella, Peggy Lee, Judy Garland in her brief stay there). They raised jazz-influenced vocals to the gold standard of pop. So does "Unforgettable", Natalie Cole's one essential album."
Sounds better than ever!

"Every time I listen to Natalie Cole's CD featuring remakes of her father's music, I am amazed by how great it sounds. Natalie's voice is really beautiful on this CD and sounds perfectly tailored for the pop and jazz standards her father made. Recently, I listened to this CD back-to-back with a Nat King Cole greatest hits CD, and I honestly have to say that I prefer Natalie's music. I know that sounds almost blasphemous, but Nat's arrangements tend to be more sedate (reflective of 50's and 60's traditional pop music). Natalie's recordings of this music have more punch. Of course, much of that may be due to improved recording techniques and so forth, but it also has to do with differing vocal styles. Nat was more of a crooner than Natalie. As much as I like Nat King Cole's music, I have to admit that this CD is perhaps even better! That's quite an accomplishment, and this CD should please even Nat's fans."
A Wonderful Tribute

"If you are looking for songs that sound exactly like Nat King Cole sang them, don't buy this album. Buy the original King Cole albums. If on the other hand, you want to hear these old classics done extremely well, this is a great album. Natalie does a fine job on her dad's songs and her voice is wonderful. The title song, "Unforgettable" is indeed. It is the highlight of the album with the fake duo of father and daughter, brought to us by a wonderful mixing technique. The only regret I have is that they didn't mix a few more of the songs in duet. Perhaps it would have gotten tiresome, but hearing just the one leaves you longing for more. This album is perhaps not quite as satisfying as listening to the "King" himself, but is still rates 5 stars. Worth owning just for the "Unforgettable" duet.
The other songs are just icing on the cake. A good buy with 22 songs and a really great accompaying booklet with song history and nice photos."
