“No singer, not even Andy Bey, or his brother Freddy sang with the kind of molten fire as Nat King Cole. And Ori Dagan, on his tribute to the inimitable vocalist rightly makes no attempt to pour on the liquid velvet on Nathaniel. But what Mr. Dagan does with his singularly delicious baritone is something truly remarkable. Moreover, in switching things up on some of Nat King Cole’s most recognizable pieces, such as “Nature Boy” and “Unforgettable” makes it clear that what he has set out to do on this album is to present his own extraordinary vocal talent at the altar of originality in all his unique style and whimsy, and posh personality as a truly individual and authentic homage to one of the greatest vocalists and musicians in Jazz.”
– Raul da Gama
