Jazz singer-songwriter Ori Dagan’s third recording "Nathaniel: A Tribute to Nat King Cole” will be released as a visual album: a collection of twelve music videos.
The team includes producer Leonardo Dell’Anno, directors Nate Robertson, Carlos Coronado, Juan Camilo Palacio, Diana Piruzevska, Ryan Maggs and others. Videos will include live action, lyric videos and cartoons. This ambitious project is inspired by a jazz legend whom Dagan feels deserves to be celebrated in a special way:
“On the surface it’s the beauty of Cole’s voice which he is known for. The more research I did, the more I realized how groundbreaking, innovative and influential he was, from his genius piano playing to being a trailblazer as the first African American star to host his own television special. I was amazed to come across recordings he made in Italian, French and Japanese – musically he made everything sound so effortless and his timeless recordings are as relevant today as ever.”
Recorded by producer and engineer Doug Romanow at Noble Street Studios in Toronto, the album featuring guest appearances by some of jazz music’s brightest luminaries: 88-year-young bebop legend Sheila Jordan, 5-time JUNO winner and two-time Grammy nominee Jane Bunnett and “Canada’s Sweetheart of Swing,” Alex Pangman. Guitarist Nathan Hiltz co-wrote the 5 originals with Dagan and appears on all tracks, along with Mark Kieswetter on piano, Ross MacIntyre on bass. The album’s originals are a tribute to Nat King Cole’s life, music and legacy, and the other tracks include fresh takes on his famous songs plus a few hidden gems from his discography. The recording has been completed and features the following songs, with previews available at Ori’s Soundcloud page:
