to me, the quintessential nat cole records are still "after midnight, the complete  sessions", and "nat king cole sings, george shearing plays".

examples from both...

from after midnight:

the stuff smith violin on this tune is stellar.

with g. shearing:

this is probably the lushest album ever recorded. it's total ear candy.

Keiko Matsui, an enormously talented Japanese composer and pianist. Just off the beaten path.
The audience is way too polite here, but the quality of the musicians undeniable.
