One of the best and most popular musicians of the 1950s and '60s, Nat "King" Cole was the first African-American entertainer to host his own television series, and many of the great musical talents of the day stopped by his studio to appear on The Nat "King" Cole Show. The Incomparable Nat King Cole is a collection of highlights from Cole's acclaimed series, including appearances by Sammy Davis Jr., Ella Fitzgerald, Harry Belafonte, Oscar Peterson, the Mills Brothers, Coleman Hawkins, and Stan Getz, and performances of such timeless classics as "Unforgettable," "Mona Lisa," "Sweet Lorraine," "Almost Like Being in Love," "The Christmas Song," and "A Blossom Fell." ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
