Continuing her successful foray into the American songbook, Natalie Cole served as executive producer on her third album of pop standards. Eighteen selections, including works by Hoagy Carmichael and songs associated with Nat, Ella, Sarah, and Dinah. Big-band orchestration and a trumpet solo by Wynton Marsalis on "He Was Too Good to Me." Guest players include Fourplay, Everette Harp, George Duke, and John Pizzarelli. Cole originally recorded Nat's "When I Fall in Love" ballad on her Everlasting album. Here she does a duet with dad à la "Unforgettable." She also closes the album with a solo version sung in Spanish.
