On February 8th the New York Pops, led by Music Director and Conductor Steven Reineke, paid tribute to Nat King Cole’s centennial with Unforgettable: Celebrating Nat King Cole and Friends. Starting off things in the swing of it, the orchestra launched into Count Basie’s “One O’Clock Jump” and they never sounded better
