Freddy Cole Quartet

Tue

March

10th

A Grammy nominee in his own right, Freddy Cole makes no apology for sounding like his brother Nat as he stands shoulder to shoulder with today’s jazz greats. Cole performs perfectly polished smoky jazz with panache and personality. A master vocalist and pianist, Cole will captivate you with his warm presence, subtle phrasing, and world-class music. He has been charming audiences in the states and around the globe for over 40 years.

Cole’s musical education began at Chicago’s Roosevelt Institute and continued with degrees from Juilliard School of Music in New York and the New England Conservatory of Music. Today, Cole feels blessed to be doing what he loves best—telling stories through music and reaching people with his exuberant warmth and inexorable talent.

According to The New York Times, “Freddy has an impeccable sense of swing…he is, overall, the most maturely expressive male jazz singer of his generation, if not the best alive.”
