Synopsis by Mark Deming
In 1961, the British Broadcasting Company filmed a concert appearance by American jazz artist Nat "King" Cole, and broadcast the footage as a special presentation later that same year. For nearly three decades, the Cole special was thought to be lost, but in the early 1990's it was discovered in the network's film archives, and now this rare concert by a timeless artist has been made available on home video. An Evening With Nat "King" Cole, one of the very few Cole performances filmed in color, features the singer and pianist performing fourteen songs in his inimitable style, including "Unforgettable", "Mona Lisa", "Ramblin' Rose", "Sweet Lorraine", "The Way You Look Tonight", and "When I Fall In Love".
