King Cole Trio. The Complete Capitol Transcription Sections.

I'm concentrating here on the cuts off of this that don't have the voice of Nat King Cole, but just the trio. I do like his singing to some extent, but what I really like is his trio, with the guitar of Oscar Moore. The chord voicings of Cole on the piano really complement Moore's mellow but plaintive guitar.

My first jazz lp that I owned was a recording of the Cole trio without any vocal work, and this capitol compilation reproduces some of those cuts, like Body and Soul, Honeysuckle Rose.
