The Cole Nobody knows  
(21 min)

Musician Freddy Cole often refers to himself as “The Cole
Nobody Knows' due to the fact that he is the somewhat
unknown younger brother of legendary pianist-vocalist Nat
'King' Cole and uncle of renowned singer Natalie Cole. Cole’s
vocals - suave, elegant, formidable and articulate - are among
the most respected in jazz. Even though he has been
nominated for a Grammy Award and a recording artist for more
than fifty years, Cole has yet to be accepted into the
mainstream public’s consciousness. In December of 2003,
filmmaker Clay Walker, a huge admirer of Cole’s music,
approached Cole with the idea of creating a documentary on
his life and music. Photography on the project began almost
immediately. Walker traveled to New York City to shoot Cole’s
performance at the Blue Note Jazz Club at the year’s end. Over
the next eight months, performances in Atlanta & Los Angeles
were also photographed along with numerous interviews.
Featuring never-before-seen performance material and
interviews with jazz legends Clark Terry and Monty Alexander
as well as WCLK radio host Carl Anthony, “The Cole Nobody
Knows” documentary is a playful overview of Freddy Cole’s
music and explanation of Cole’s position within the
contemporary Jazz scene.
