Natalie Cole's Unforgettable Tribute to Her Father in 1991
In 1991, American singer Natalie Cole released her thirteenth studio album, Unforgettable... with Love, which was a tribute to her father, the legendary Nat King Cole. The album featured covers of standards that her father had performed, such as \"Mona Lisa\", \"Nature Boy\", and \"L-O-V-E\". It was also her debut for Elektra Records, after being given her release from EMI Records.
The album was a huge success in the pop, jazz, and R&B markets and was considered the major comeback recording that had been brewing since Cole's late 1980s releases. The album was certified 7Ã platinum by the RIAA and won six Grammy Awards, including Album of the Year and Record of the Year for the title track, which was a duet with her father using his original vocal track from 1951.
The album also featured contributions from Cole's uncle Ike Cole on piano, as well as producers David Foster, Tommy LiPuma, and AndrÃ Fischer. The album had a total of 22 tracks and a running time of over 72 minutes. Some of the songs were arranged in medleys, such as \"For Sentimental Reasons/Tenderly/Autumn Leaves\" and \"Almost Like Being in Love/This Can't Be Love\". The album also included a bonus track of \"Non Dimenticar\", which was one of Nat King Cole's favorite songs.
Unforgettable... with Love was a landmark album in Natalie Cole's career and a fitting homage to her father's legacy. It showcased her versatility as a vocalist and her ability to interpret classic songs with her own style. The album also helped to introduce a new generation of listeners to Nat King Cole's music and influence.
One of the most remarkable aspects of the album was the technology that allowed Natalie Cole to sing with her father, who had died in 1965. The process involved isolating Nat King Cole's vocal track from the original recording and synchronizing it with Natalie Cole's voice and a new orchestral arrangement. The result was a seamless and emotional duet that sounded as if the father and daughter were in the same studio.
The duet of \"Unforgettable\" was released as the lead single from the album and became a worldwide hit. It reached number one on the Billboard Adult Contemporary chart and number 14 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. It also topped the charts in Australia, Canada, Ireland, and New Zealand. The song received rave reviews from critics and fans alike, who praised the technical innovation and the sentimental value of the collaboration.
The success of the duet also led to a video that featured Natalie Cole singing along with footage of her father from his television show and other performances. The video won the Grammy Award for Best Music Video and was nominated for an MTV Video Music Award. The video also helped to boost the sales of the album, which sold over 14 million copies worldwide.
Besides the duet of \"Unforgettable\", the album also featured other songs that showcased Natalie Cole's vocal range and style. Some of the highlights were \"The Very Thought of You\", which was a romantic ballad with a smooth jazz arrangement; \"Route 66\", which was a swinging rendition of the classic road song; \"Mona Lisa\", which was a delicate and graceful interpretation of the Oscar-winning song; and \"Lush Life\", which was a soulful and dramatic performance of the Billy Strayhorn masterpiece.
The album also included some lesser-known songs that Natalie Cole discovered in her father's catalog, such as \"Avalon\", \"Thou Swell\", and \"Darling, Je Vous Aime Beaucoup\". These songs demonstrated Natalie Cole's appreciation and respect for her father's musical legacy and her desire to share it with a wider audience.
Unforgettable... with Love was not only a commercial and critical success, but also a personal triumph for Natalie Cole, who had overcome drug addiction and health problems in the previous years. The album marked a new phase in her career and established her as one of the leading singers of her generation. The album also paid tribute to her father's influence and inspired other artists to record similar projects with their deceased relatives or idols.
