“Our Love ”
The daughter of pop-jazz vocal legend Nat King Cole, Natalie Cole spent the early years of her career singing light R&B before transitioning into a smooth brand of jazz in the late Eighties. This song from her third album, Thankful, was written by the production team of Chuck Jackson and Marvin Yancy (the latter was married to Cole at the time). "Marvin just sat down at the piano and started playing something and he told me to sing," Cole says of her first meeting with the songwriters. "Chuck would give me some lyrics that I'd sing — and Marvin and I just went into another zone completely."
