Freddy Cole: Live at Vartan Jazz

Freddy Cole sings and plays like a man who’s lived life. Using the Cole trio of guitar, bass and his piano, he swings, croons, and moans his way through tunes both familiar and obscure. With a voice smooth yet seasoned, he tells a tale; check out his phrasing on “You’d Be So Nice To Come Home To.” Whether soloing, or comping behind guitarist Jerry Byrd or bassist Tom Hubbard, his intelligence and experience speak volumes.
