They made one official recording together -- but it wasn't for Capitol, the label both are best known for. Rather, it came in 1946 when Frank was at Columbia. He did a swinging version of "Sweet Lorraine" with the Metronome All-Stars, a combo comprised of players selected by the magazine's readers, and Nat Cole played piano. (Nat and his trio did transcription work for other artists at about this time, such as Anita O'Day; they back her in a splendid version of "Penthouse Serenade.")

Frank's suit is perfect.
