Nat King Cole was one of four brothers who all played and sang and had similar voices – Nat, Ike, Freddy and Eddie. Eddie was the oldest and it was he who taught Nat how to play piano and coached him on his singing.

Eddie had a successful career of his own, forming his first band at 17, recording for Decca, and culminating in a featured role on the TV series ‘Bourbon Street Beat’. When Eddie met his wife Betty King, who also played and sang, they formed an unusual duo in which they performed together on one keyboard.

Gathered here for the first time on CD are both of their rare LP’s, as well as several singles, all digitally restored in Jasmine’s pristine sound. Nearly 90 minutes in all.
