Too Marvelous for Words: A Celebration of Nat King Cole

Too Marvelous for Words: A Celebration of Nat King Cole

Keith David

Actor and singer Keith David takes us on a swingin’ journey into the life and music of Nat “King” Cole. Before the crooner immortalized “The Christmas Song” and “Mona Lisa,” standing in front of the orchestra, he was recording and playing (from the piano bench!) some of the tastiest and most influential music of the day. Emmy and Tony Award winner Keith David has been a Hollywood mainstay for decades, with appearances in such films as Platoon, Mr. and Mrs. Smith, Crash and Armageddon, as well as his current hit TV show, Greanleaf.

A lifetime fan of Nat “King” Cole, Mr. David infuses his love of Cole into the show with lush arrangements of Nat’s most famous songs, beautifully placed in the context of American history, charming stories, and little-known anecdotes. Too Marvelous for Words is fun, informative and irresistibly swinging.
