Environment:Amalfi Ristorante & Bar is the former site of the Famous Swanee Inn. You may ask why the Swanee Inn was famous, and the answer would sound a bit like this:

In 1937, club owner Bob Lewis suggested that budding Jazz musician Nathaniel "Nat" Cole assemble a small band to work at his Swanee Inn on North La Brea. The group's unorthodox instrumentation and size - due to the size of the stage at the Swanee, they had no drummer and, at the time, big bands were the rage - featured Wesley Prince on bass and the innovative phrasings of electric guitarist Oscar Moore. The Trio's blend of jump blues and jazzy instrumentals with bouncy vocal stylings was a collective effort, while Cole occasionally took the lead on standard ballads. A month's booking turned into a year's stay.

Now the Prince of the Ivories was to become a King. Wesley began calling Nat "King Cole", coming from the Mother Goose nursery rhyme, "Old King Cole". Nat was far from being old, but the name stuck. From there the name of the group would undergo many changes: first "King Cole and His Sepia Swingsters", then "King Cole's Swing Trio", then simply the "King Cole Trio". Along with their popularity at Bob Lewis' Swanee Inn, the Trio also made their first records for Standard Transcriptions, well over 100 tunes. And after their gig was over at the nightclub, they had built up a following in Hollywood, so everywhere they went, they were a hit. But the best was yet to come.
