When last heard from, teenage smooth-jazz pianist Nicholas Cole had just missed hitting the top-10, peaking at No. 11 on Billboard's jazz-songs chart last November. But the Goldsboro native has cleared that hurdle with his latest release, "Between Us," from the upcoming album "Endless Possiblities" (out Sept. 11 on the Sony-distributed label Cutmore Records).
In its third week, "Between Us" cracks the top-10 by climbing three notches to No. 8 on the Aug. 25 jazz-songs chart -- on its way to the toppermost of the jazzermost.
