Why See Nat King Cole: The Vanguard of Avant Garde?
Nat King Cole, the pianist and singer, broke color lines pushing through barriers of injustice. A determined, yet humble and truly gifted individual, Nat had a unique drive and passion for stardom that arose directly from his need to please people to the nth degree.
Always catering to the needs of an ever-demanding audience, Nat publicly strove to become the world's most beloved entertainer. Behind closed doors, Nat's life was vastly different from what he showed to the public. Privately, Nat battled mainstream prejudice, addiction and heartache.
