KARAOKE SCENE MAGAZINE ONLINE! - OoRIKoO performs Nature Boy on Karaoke Showcase - This is one of many collaborations I have done with my very good friend from Brazil Julio Cezar. He taught me a lot and this song is an example of that. On the last part of the track he did an amazing musical trip and asked me to "Jazz Scat" through it and I would find out how good my timing and pitch really were. I still use this today for vocal practice rather than scales. "Nature Boy" is a song first recorded by American jazz singer Nat King Cole. It was released on March 29, 1948, as a single by Capitol Records, and later appeared on the album, The Nat King Cole Story. The song was written in 1947 by Eden Ahbez as a tribute to ahbez's mentor. When Cole was performing in 1947 at the Lincoln Theater, Ahbez wanted to present the song to him, but was ignored. He left the copy with Cole's valet, and from him the singer came to know of "Nature Boy".

Jerry Now, if we were (Nature Boy's) hunting bears, Moose (or is it "Mooise"), or Caribou in the Alaska back country and someone yelled. "Hey, there's warm bear scat on the trail!!!" We'd all get excited. It's the same with musical scat...it does add a great deal to the enjoyment of a jazzy song. So, when I say I loved your 'scat' please understand I speak of your song scat...it's way cool to hear, and not warm on the trail. I enjoyed your wonderful recording and now, I must scat.
Reply: Jerry ....I'm so glad it was you that mentioned this. I thought about it but pushed that right to the curb...LOL

Grathy Great arrangement and excellent scatting… I love this type of material. Wonderful.
Reply: HI Grathy, and I thank you for taking time to listen and for your awesome comment. The arrangement as well as every instrument on this track is the amazing work of my dear friend Julio Cezar from Rio. I was Blessed to have him come into my life with a whole new kind of music and beat. He recently lost his wife to cancer and Darlene and I are thinking of going down to visit him. hanks again. Rik
