About the Event

Vocalist Sachal Vasandani is one of the great crooners of our time and the perfect man for a Nat “King” Cole centennial celebration. Though a distinctive artist in his own right, his “beautiful, velvety voice” and “remarkable stage presence” (NPR) have drawn multiple comparisons to Nat “King” Cole himself. Vasandani is particularly well known for his Cole tribute project, which has featured classics like “Unforgettable,” “Mona Lisa,” and “Straighten Up and Fly Right.”

This showcase has graced major stages in both small group and orchestral settings, and the new versions performed tonight in the elegant majesty of The Appel Room—with its unparalleled view of the New York skyline—will take it to the next level.

In addition to his vocal abilities and cool, charismatic showmanship, Vasandani also honors Cole’s legacy as a masterful pianist by sharing the spotlight with some of the best instrumentalists in the business—including bass legend John Clayton, who will contribute new Cole arrangements for this centennial event. In this special centennial celebration, audiences will enjoy the many sides of Nat “King” Cole’s artistry in an appropriately stylish setting.
