Barking Legs honors Nat King Cole this Thursday
The man who brought us timeless classics like “L-O-V-E” and “The Christmas Song ” is being honored at Barking Legs Theater this Thursday, Sept. 3.
Possessed of a voice that was simply unforgettable, no pun intended, Mr. Nat King Cole was one of the most adored vocalists of the 20th century, and continues to inspire budding jazz musicians today with his velvety baritone voice and incredible pianist talents.
Through a partnership with Knoxville’s Jazz Orchestra, Barking Legs Theater will host “A Tribute to Nat King Cole,” which will include a performance of special selections by the group’s artists, guitarist and vocalist Wesley Lunsford, pianist Andrew LaPrise, and bassist Will Yager.
Spend your Thursday night reminiscing about times past with this tribute to a treasured legend, a classic crooner who changed the way we appreciate jazz. Selections for the event will include: “It’s Better To Be By Yourself”, “Straighten Up and Fly Right”, “It’s Only a Paper Moon”, “Sweet Loraine,” and others.
An opportunity to reflect on and enjoy such sensational music is a true treat and one that shouldn’t be passed up.
