In his heyday, Cole and artists such as Les Baxter and Peggy Lee revived Capitol Records from near bankruptcy. The riot of a pianist also is responsible for the LA label building nickname known as “The House That Nat Built.” In terms of culture, he transformed television politics by becoming the first African American to host an industry-based show in the US. The Nat King Cole Show debuted on NBC in 1956 featuring contemporary household names including Ella Fitzgerald, Harry Belafonte ( “Day-O”), and Eartha Kitt, but eventually failed due to lack of national sponsorship and widespread bigotry.
The album was intended to bridge the gap between new and old, classic and modern, and even race–much like Cole’s personal life achievements. Among the artists to share their devotions on the 2009 release were Cee-Lo, TV On The Radio, The Roots, Damien Marley, Nas, and The Brazilian Girls. Please enjoy this swing-filled jazz remix of Chemist’s addition, “Day In – Day Out.” It just had to be brought back into rotation!

His science is the mixture of musical matter and the reactions he creates make him the infamous Cut Chemist. Once a member and contributing producer of Jurassic 5, the American DJ has had us dancing, swaying, and bouncing to his ranging mixes. Re:Generations is an honorary album that celebrates Nat King Cole’s legendary influence on folk-jazz and American culture in general.
