Nat King Cole "Calypso Blues"

The first version I heard of "Calypso Blues" was by Zilla Mays on her fantastic LP, "The Men I Love (And The Songs They Sang)". Her version is fabulous. I tracked down Nat's version (on the Proper box set) and dug that as well.

Now here's a live version that features bongo great Jack Costanzo (who also played on the studio version).
