‘St. Louis Blues’ is a 1958 album and soundtrack to the film of the same name starring Nat King Cole. The film is about and with classic blues songs written by the ''father of the blues'' W.C. Handy. Beautiful orchestration by Nelson Riddle and excellent interpretations by that wonderful unique smooth voice from Nat King Cole who knew how to sing the blues. Handy took the blues from a regional music style (Delta blues) with a limited audience to a new level of popularity. Handy’s finest compositions includes ''Memphis Blues'', Yellow Dog Blues'', ''Beale Street Blues,'' ''Careless Love'' and of course the title song ''St. Louis Blues''.
