Too Marvelous For Words

“Too Marvelous For Words: A Celebration of Nat ‘King’ Cole” is a fun and swingin’ journey into the life and music of Nat “King” Cole. Before “The Christmas Song” and “Mona Lisa” that we know from the crooner standing in front of the orchestra, Nat was recording and playing (from the piano bench!) some of the tastiest and most influential music of the day, leaving an impact not only on an array of singers, but also on such pianists as Oscar Peterson and Ahmad Jamal.

The show features as narrator/lead singer the wonderful Keith David, who has been a Hollywood mainstay for decades, with appearances in films such as The Nice Guys, Platoon, Mr. and Mrs. Smith, Crash, and Armageddon. A lifetime fan of Nat Cole, Mr. David infuses his love of Cole into the show (written and created by Peter Smith and Robert Perkins). Lush arrangements of Nat’s most famous songs are beautifully placed in the context of American history, charming stories, and little-known anecdotes. Sweetened by these fascinating tidbits from Nat’s life, “Too Marvelous For Words” is fun, informative, and irresistibly swinging.

“难以言喻:庆祝Nat King Cole三重奏”是一个回归早起Nat King Cole的旅程。在“圣诞之歌”和“蒙娜丽莎”之前,Nat在录制和演奏那时期最具影响力的音乐,并且影响了一大批的歌手和钢琴家。彼得史密斯(创作者)汲取于他作为演员,歌手和钢琴家的经验,不费吹灰之力地编制了Nat King Cole的生活,为观众创造了一个有趣又内容丰富的夜晚,让他们沉浸在Nat的生活之中。

Una maravilla que no puede ponerse en palabras: Una celebración del Nat ‘King’ Cole Trio es un viaje a los primeros días de Nat King Cole”. Antes de “The Christmas Song” y “Mona Lisa”, Nat estaba grabando y tocando algo de la música más influyente de sus días, dejando un impacto en una serie de cantantes y pianistas de la época. Basándose en su experiencia como actor, cantante y pianista, Peter Smith (creador) teje sin esfuerzo historias de la vida de Nat King Cole, creando una noche que es divertida e informativa dejando al público moviendo los pies y meditando los chismes jugosos de la vida de Nat.
