A Prelude in C sharp minor by Rachmaninoff
Nat King Cole & Rachmaninov: Forgotten Side
In 1944 Nat King Cole recorded Rachmaninov Prelude in C- sharp Minor with his Los Angeles Based Piano based trio. What makes this recording special is that is the meeting of classical and Jazz, a convergence of the Twain of the worlds so-called “Old “ and “New” . While Cole has been branded for the great “Unforgettable”, this recording has at times fallen into forgetfulness that Cole was also a great Pianist.
