Adam Shulman Trio Plays Nat King Cole Live at the Red Poppy

September 18, 2011

Adam Shulman, Jack Riordan, and John Wiitala spent a night celebrating the artistry of Nat King Cole and the Nat King Cole Trio at the Red Poppy Art House on June 16, 2011. Classic music, talented musicians, and an intimate venue in the Mission. What’s not to like? This is why we live in San Francisco!

Here’s a few photos and one audio track from the first song of the night — Somebody Loves Me — with a little bit of background on early Nat King Cole (the pianist) by Adam after they finish. Enjoy!
