The sound and style of the original Nat King Cole Trio recreated. Cole Swings Cole is a vibrant and engaging performance by George Cole on guitar and vocals, Larry Dunlap on piano, and Jim Kerwin on the upright bass.
"One of the biggest issues with my OneMic recordings is getting a good balance with live drums in the room. This wasn’t the case with George. However, I soon realized that acoustic grand piano and upright bass presented many other challenges that I wasn’t prepared for. Fortunately George has a strong voice and electric guitar that I could move in and around the mic to balance it against the more ambient sounding piano and bass. With only a dash of reverb added during the vocal sections I was able to present a more cohesive sound. My filmmaker Nathaniel and I also decided to shoot in B&W for a more vintage look." - John Cuniberti
