'Cole's devotion, perhaps mostmemorably and mellifluously expressedin 'Mona Lisa', was to the enigma ofbeauty, that transcendent thing that wecannot adequately define but which werecognise as soon as confronted by it. Try'Blame It on My Youth' here. Is it jazz'Probably. Is it beautiful' Certainly. Does itsurvive the ages' It has so far.'PENGUIN GUIDE TO JAZZ'Welcome to a world where everythingseems light, graceful and airy -bright,cheerful and romantic -swinging, dancingand stunning. You are lucky, this worldis that of Nat 'King' Cole, who in thosebeautiful days of August and September1956, at Los Angeles' Capitol Studios,rediscovered the contagious happinessof singing while accompanying himself onthe piano.' Jazz Magazine *****AMG:'These 1956 studio sessions made up Cole's last jazz-oriented disc, where he playedpiano and sang on every number, joined by several guest soloists. Cole's vocals areimpeccable and swinging, while his piano alternates between providing subduedbackgrounds and light solos that don't reveal his true potential on the instrument. It's hardfor any Nat King Cole fan to ignore these important sessions.' (Ken Dryden)
