The Frim Fram Sauce

Monday morning have breakfast with Nat King Cole calling out his order:

I don't want French-fried potatoes
Red ripe tomatoes
I'm never satisfied
I want the frim fram sauce with the Ausen fay
With chafafa on the side

I don't want porkchops and bacon
That won't awaken
My appetite inside
I want the frim fram sauce with the Ausen fay
With chafafa on the side

A fella really got to eat
And a fella should eat right
Five will get you ten
I'm gonna feed myself right tonight

I don't want fish cakes and rye bread
You heard what I said
Waiter, please serve mine fried
I want the frim fram sauce with the Ausen fay
With chafafa on the side

A fella really got to eat
And a fella should eat right
Five will get you ten
I'm gonna feed myself right tonight

I don't want fish cakes and rye bread
You heard what I said
Waiter, please serve mine fried
I want the frim fram sauce with the Ausen fay
With chafafa on the side

Fake News, 1930s Style

***

Monday, and knee deep in alternative facts. This Yip Harburg-Harold Arlen song spills the beans.

Nat King Cole was such a great singer that sometimes people forget that he started out as a first-class jazz pianist, as you can see on his piano solo here.

Reunald Jones on trumpet, John Collins on guitar.

Too Young: Nat King Cole

***

Some people say that Nat King Cole was arguably the greatest 20th century American  male singer. When I listen to a performance such as in the video above, I have a hard time disagreeing…

This recording was number one on the American charts in 1951.
