Listening Report: Nat King ColeListening Report: NatKingCole I kind of liked this CD. It had some smooth tunes to groove to. It was kind of good hearing vocals after doing so many listening reports on CDís with just instrumentalism. This guy has got a beautiful voice, and its no wonder he had millions of fans. I especially liked some of the lyrics that this guy had in his tunes. He really was a loverboy.
