Excerpts from the original liners -
In presenting this second volume of classics featuring the King Cole Trio, the music which is captured throughout the eight sterling sides between these covers requires few footnotes ... Nat Cole's nimble, scintillating piano artistry complements his personable and intimate vocal stylings on eight memorable favorites, songs which stimulate memories of the past and inspire ambitions for the future ... Teaming with the Cole skills are Oscar Moore, renowned for his talent as master of the electrically-amplified guitar, and Johnny Miller, whose consistent, effortless, fine-toned bass work has long been a vital component of the King Cole Trio's performances ... Together, they purvey music with a jazz beat and a ballad heart ... You'll find these favorite songs are played with favored treatment ... Capitol is privileged to offer Volume 2 in the King Cole Series. For here is contained nearly a full half-hour's entertainment which bears - and improves with - repeated hearings ... Once again, at your request, it's King Cole Trio time!
