Tribute to Nat King Cole is a musical tribute by Maciej Miecznikowski and Krzysia Górniak on the 50th anniversary of the great American vocalist and jazz pianist’s death.

Maciej Miecznikowski – a suberb musician with a characteristic voice that sounds at its finest in the Romantic repertoire and Krzysia Górniak – known jazz guitarist whose delicate and feminine approach combined with virtuosity is a unique quality much in demand on the musical scene. It’s an extraordinary combination of two different temperaments and personalities. In their interpretation, the world hits of Nat King Cole, including Unforgettable, Route 66, When I Fall In Love, are sung and played with feeling in unconventional arrangements for two guitars and vocals, sounding very fresh and alive.

Tribute To Nat King Cole is an intimate sort of musical playing, close to ear and brimming with emotion. At their concerts, Maciej and Krzysia put the listeners in a state of reverie and elation and their combination of great contact with the audience and unconsumed energy guarantee a successful, entertaining concert. This duo is perfect both for small chamber-like events and large halls.
