Reissue of the classic 1967 release
Contains 13 previously unissued bonus tracks
Fully authorized by the Estate of Bobby Cole
Produced for release by Grammy-winner Cheryl Pawelski and remastered by Grammy-winner Michael Graves, with a new essay from Grammy-nominated writer Randy Poe


Frank Sinatra walks into a bar . . .

Well, Frank called it a bistroand Jillys on 52nd Street even had matchbooks that when opened read, My favorite bistroFrank Sinatra. It also featured Franks favorite saloon singer, Bobby Cole, who held court there for many years. His other gigs around New York landed him a recording contract with Columbia, but the 1960 release from The Bobby Cole Trio, while well reviewed, failed to gain traction. It featured no original material from Cole, and was essentially a recorded version of his Jillys actone hard to capture on LP.

Judy Garland walks into a bar . . .

In 1964, and after hearing Coles performance of and after hearing Coles performance of one of her favorites, Cy Colemans You Fascinate Me So, Garland invited him to become the new musical arranger for CBSs The Judy Garland Show in Los Angeles. When that show ended, Cole returned to New York and Jillys.

Jack Lonshein, whose day job was creating covers for artists including Sarah Vaughan, Maynard Ferguson, Coleman Hawkins, Lester Young, (and eventually Big Brother & The Holding Company and The Amboy Dukes!), was a friend of Coles. He knew Bobbys magic, and original songs, were what the jazz world needed. Taking things into his own hands, A Point of View was released on Lonsheins own Concentric Records, and as can happen, no matter how well received and reviewed a record is, finding a copy was half the battle for fans. A Point of View made waves in the boroughs, was raved about in Billboard and Cash Box, and then disappearedbut became a coveted prize by those who experienced it. Artists including Freddy Cole (Nats brother) and Tom Jones covered material from it.
A Point of View now returns 55 years later, fully authorized by the Estate of Bobby Cole. Produced for release by Grammy-winner Cheryl Pawelski and lovingly remastered by Grammy-winner Michael Graves, this new version presents the original release, plus thirteen previously unissued bonus tracks drawn from sessions likely intended for a follow up release to A Point of View that didnt happen. A fascinating and thorough essay from Grammy-nominated writer Randy Poe tells the story of Cole, the scene, and the music.
Available on CD and Digital April 15, 2022 (with a double-LP version slated for Fall of 2022), A Point of View will be finally seen and heard, appreciated, and revered, as originally intended.
