Ori Dagan hippest Nat King Cole tribute Ori Dagan – Nathaniel- A Tribute to Nat King Cole

Ori Dagan hippest Nat King Cole tribute Ori Dagan – NATHANIEL… A TRIBUTE TO NAT KING COLE:  I’m not (quite) sure why I haven’t listened to & reviewed Ori’s splendid vocal talent before – this is his third album – but, I’ve no doubt that he’s one of the coolest jazz vocalists I’ve ever heard!  As you listen to his exciting original, “Sweetheart”, you’ll hear the sweet & silky voice that has already won him awards.

As I did my “due diligence”, I found the following video featuring his fun-filled performance of “Sting Of The Cactus” for you to enjoy…

…if that’s not cool (& full of the spirit of life) – nothin’ is!  To get a taste of his LIVE performance, also check out the opener on the album, “Lilette”…

His duet with guest artist Sheila Jordan on Nat’s original tune, “Straighten Up and Fly Right“, is just hands-down the best jazz vocal tune I’ve heard (yet) in 2017… just like Nat’s work, the pair make singing like this seem effortless… & if you’re a practicing jazz vocalist, you KNOW that’s not true!  This is my personal favorite of the dozen songs offered up for your jazz listening pleasure! 

I give Ori, his players & his guest artists a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED, as well as a (perfect) “EQ” (energy quotient) rating of 5.00; which means, of course, that the album also gets a “PICK” for “best jazz vocal album”.  Check out Ori’s website to get more information on this most hip young singer.         Rotcod Zzaj
