His style being rooted in Jazz, Nat came up through the music scene of Chicago his family having moved their from Montgomery.

Nat King Coles Career in Music and on Screen
Nat’s importance as a musical leader and pioneer of social change should not be underestimated. With his ability to send women and men weak at the knees with his remarkable musical talent, he drew favour and bigotry. At the time when Nat was at his zenith a black artist able to span the cultural and racial divide in such a powerful way was rare a thing indeed. With his own TV show and an actor he pulled a huge following. Unfortunately Nat’s television career was hampered when his show was cut after just one season. He’d no doubt drawn envy from other performers and at a time of deep prejudice he was axed by TV executives.
