The first music CD I ever purchased, motivated by getting a desktop computer with a CD drive, lo, those many moons ago.
Overall, one of the best single albums of pop music standards produced since the seventies. Some people felt that Natalie Cole was cashing in on her father's legacy with this album. However, she was taking an enormous creative risk as a pop singer taking on the traditional songbook canon.
It turned out to be an awesome move. Cole's voice is fine and she knows what she wants to do with each song. She is not excessively respectful and knows when to be playful and when to slow down and let the music breathe. Cole worked with a series of producers on this album but it all seems cohesive and unified. Each orchestral setting tuned to the nuance of each song. Even the progression of songs is carefully done and the final moments of Unforgettable linger long in the memory. Cole's artistic risk turned into an enormous popular and critical success and probably helped pave the way for the successes of Tony Bennett and Michael Buble in the traditional pop field.
