The Malaysian fans of Nat King Cole, led by the Guest of Honor, YAM Tunku Naquiyuddin ibni Tuanku Ja’afer of Negeri Sembilan were very much thankful to spend the beautiful Friday evening by going back to the past on a time machine in Istana Budaya when Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra and Nat King Cole once ruled the charts and melted everybody's hearts across the globe.

“His music and lyrics were universal and had beautiful messages of love and life. They are all still very meaningful today. As an artiste, Nat King Cole has been a great role model for the swing-jazz artistes of today,” exclaimed Yannick Bovy, who believes that Nat King Cole has paved his way as one of the most influential black artists in American Music History and especially in Jazz music.
