The Art of Leon Williams
Performed by Leon Williams
Music and Lyrics by Irving Gordon
Listen to the Music!
Irving Gordon’s Unforgettable, made famous by Nat King Cole’s rendition in the 50’s, is superbly performed here by Leon Williams, whose rich voice and heartfelt delivery imbue this classic composition with new life. This timeless love song succinctly describes the all-encompassing memories we cherish of our loved ones, as well as the wondrous knowledge that our thoughts and feelings are reciprocated. It is off Leon’s album The Art of Leon Williams, a souvenir collection of highlights from Leon’s tour of the same name. A showcase of vocal mastery, these performances from a variety of sources (including jazz standards, oldies pop, spirituals, musical numbers, and film tunes) are wonderful reminders of why these songs are still performed and adored today even in some cases after 50 years or more.
