Grooving with the King March 31, 2008

Posted by Ron Warnick in Music.

Here’s a slightly different version of Bobby Troup’s “Route 66″ by Nat King Cole, a decade after he hit the charts with it. This is off King’s all-jazz “After Midnight” album in 1956. This take on “Route 66″ also features excellent playing by Harry “Sweets” Edison on trumpet John Collins on guitar.

In this sound file with a still photo, you’ll have to sit through “It’s Only a Paper Moon” before “Route 66″ begins. But I don’t think you’ll mind a bit.
