Nat King Cole & Friends Reanimate His Music With ‘Re: Generations’

Nat King Cole - Re Generations.jpgMuch respect to Carole Cole, Nat King Cole's daughter and CEO of King Cole productions for having the intuition to put the Re: Generations album together. The album debuts March 10th and consists of Nat King Cole's original recordings blissfully reimagined with such varied collaborators as Cee-Lo,, Natalie Cole, Nas, Stephen and Damian Marley, and TV On The Radio who turn "Nature Boy" into a dark, brooding Electronica track. Simply stated, think of this album as a Verve Remixed album of only Nat King Cole's songs. To tell you to pick this up when it drops is an understatement. It will be on heavy rotation on your iPod for months to come, guaranteed. My favorite track that I've heard thus far has got to be "Anytime Anyday Anywhere" produced by the oft-underappreciated Amp Fiddler. Listen to the silky smoothness below and peep the tracklist after the bounce.

  1. I LOVE THIS! Too smooth. Thanks for the post, Mami. No "Re: Generation" of "The Christmas Song" as a bonus track though?

  2. what a gorgeously diverse lineup. i'm checking for this album for sure.

  3. Yo, I'm so buying this. I love a good remix album and when the source material is this good.... it's a wrap.

  4. I LOVE this track.
    And this is definitely another highly anticipated album. March is shaping up to be a good month musically!

  5. there aren't too many remix projects that i'm excited about, but this is definitely one of them. amp fiddler sho' nuff did his thing with father cole's material, and i am just as enthusiastic about the rerubs from cee-lo (lush life), cut chemist (day in, day out), and michelangelo l'acqua & bebel gilberto (brazilian love song). i cannot WAIT for this to drop next month.
