Atila performs Nat King Cole classics live at Pizza Express Jazz Club this Saturday

Turkish Cypriot crooner Atila Huseyin is back live in London this weekend performing the early works of Nat King Cole, which feature on his new album King for a Day – the Music of the Nat Cole Trio.

The show, at the award-winning Pizza Express Jazz Club in Soho, includes familiar numbers such as Nature Boy, Unforgettable and When I fall in Love. Velvet-voiced Nat Cole’s unique renditions of these well-known songs not only helped propel him to fame in the late 1930s and early 1940s when he transitioned from jazz pianist to singer, but also earned him a place among the all-time greats in the history of American music.

Atila and his fantastic four-piece band comprising piano, bass, drums, and guitar deliver a fresh take on these timeless classics and lesser known gems from Nat’s early career. Their arrangements are tight and the interpretations warm, playful and sincere, taking audiences back to a beautiful by-gone era.

It is a highly entertaining show, as anyone who attended Atila’s album launch party at the Hippodrome Casino in May can attest. Tickets are available from the venue.
