AFRICAN American music, JAZZ, MUSICIANS, and PIANO music
The singer and pianist Freddy Cole exudes a gallant but unfussy brand of cool. Addressing a dinner-hour crowd at the Jazz Standard on Thursday, he described his own show as ''an invitation to relaxation'' -- something to take the edge off after, say, a long day of shopping, or ''whatever it is you ladies do.'' The smile he then flashed was debonair, knowing and a little mischievous. So was his reading of the following tune, a former Frank Sinatra vehicle called ''Don't Change Your Mind About Me.''
