The dulcet tones of “Nat King Cole" on this track which he made famous ‘L-O-V-E’, taken from his last studio recording released in 1964 by the same name. He died in the same year, days before the release of the album. Cole recorded different versions in various languages of the song written by Bert Kaempfert and Milt Gabler, for the international market, ‘Japanese (mixed with English words), Italian, German, Spanish and French. In this last language, the song was renamed "Je Ne Repartirai Pas" and translated by Jean Delleme’.
Born in Montgomery, Alabama in 1919, Cole dropped out of school at the age of 15 years old to pursue a music career by following his dream. He is still one of the best male vocalist in the world. Nat King Cole was the first African American man to host his own T.V. show. ‘The show was in trouble financially despite efforts by NBC,Harry Belafonte, Tony Bennett, Ella Fitzgerald, Eartha Kitt, Frankie Laine, Peggy Lee, and Mel Torme, Cole decided to end the program and the last episode aired on December 17, 1957.’
Cole has recorded many songs we now know and love. He has sold 50 million records on the Capital Records label alone. His music is timeless.
