Johnny O'Neal Quartet Celebrates Nat "King" Cole's Centennial

Johnny O'Neal
All Ages
Johnny O'Neal Quartet presents the music of Nat King Cole to help us celebrate "The World of Cole."

One of the best kept secrets in New York, Johny O’Neal sings like Joe Williams and plays piano like Art Tatum, with whom he in fact played in the Oscar-winning movie Ray.

He moved to New York City to perform with Clark Terry in 1981, and also landed a regular job at the Blue Note, accompanying such greats as Dizzy Gillespie, Ray Brown,Nancy Wilson, Joe Pass and Kenny Burrell. He was a member of Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers for two years from 1982-1983 and made his Carnegie Hall debut in 1985.

His slight stature belies the giant of the entertainer that he is — he can rock a room like a rocker, serenade it like a classic crooner, or swing it like he’s on a playground.
