‘Robin Phillips sings Nat King Cole’ for Cambridge Jazz Festival 2023

Thursday 23rd November @ 7:30 pm - 9:45 pm


In this dinner jazz programme for the Cambridge Jazz Festival 2023, jazz musician Robin Phillips performs songs by one of the most famous jazz singer / pianists of all time, Nat King Cole, in quartet format.

For this event, Robin recreates the classic line-up favoured by Nat of piano/vocals, guitar and bass, and also adding saxophone, as the group delves into Nat’s unbelievable collection of songs that, whilst he didn’t pen them, are forever inextricably linked to the great artist.

The quartet will perform Nat’s classic hits such as Let There Be Love, For Sentimental Reasons, Mona Lisa, Stardust, L.O.V.E, Straighten Up and Fly Right, Route 66 and Unforgettable, but also include some of Nat’s lesser-known but equally fantastic songs including Don’t Let It Go To Your Head, and Walkin’ My Baby Back Home.
