NOTE: This is only a partial discography of Nat's material. Since there have been many releases on many different labels over the years, I have included mainly Nat and the King Cole Trio's work on Capitol Records (U.S.A.) up until 1965, when Nat died. I have also listed other major works recorded prior to 1943 for historical purposes. Unless indicated, all releases were on Capitol.
