Nat King Cole was one of the greatest artists of our time.

As a pianist and vocalist, he inspired a generation of musicians in the 1940’s and 50’s, bridging the gap between the swing and bebop eras.

This week’s lick showcases a fun trick he would often use, involving a glissando up multiple octaves of the piano.

It can be heard on his trio recording, “Jumping at Capitol.”

Enjoy!
