In , he married Nadine Robinson, who was a member of the cast. After the show ended in Los Angeles, Cole and Nadine settled there while he looked for work. He led a big band, then found work playing piano in nightclubs.
When a club owner asked him to form a band, he hired bassist Wesley Prince and guitarist Oscar Moore. They called themselves the King Cole Swingsters after the nursery rhyme in which " Old King Cole was a merry old soul. Cole recorded " Sweet Lorraine " in , and it became his first hit.
Cole said that this fabricated story sounded good, so he didn't argue with it. In fact, there was a customer one night who demanded that he sing, but because it was a song Cole didn't know, he sang "Sweet Lorraine" instead. As people heard Cole's vocal talent, they requested more vocal songs, and he obliged. Cole appeared in the first Jazz at the Philharmonic concerts in He was credited on Mercury as "Shorty Nadine", a derivative of his wife's name, because he had an exclusive contract with Capitol  since signing with the label the year before.

After the change in musical tastes, Cole's ballads appealed little to young listeners, despite a successful attempt at rock and roll with " Send for Me ",  which peaked at number 6 on the pop chart.
Like Dean Martin , Frank Sinatra , and Tony Bennett , he found that the pop chart had been taken over by youth-oriented acts. Cole later retooled the concept album into an Off-Broadway show, I'm with You. He performed in many short films, sitcoms, and television shows and played W.

Earlier on, Cole's shift to traditional pop led some jazz critics and fans to accuse him of selling out, but he never abandoned his jazz roots; as late as he recorded an all-jazz album, After Midnight , and many of his albums after this are fundamentally jazz-based, being scored for big band without strings, although the arrangements focus primarily on the vocal rather than instrumental leads.
Cole had one of his last major hits in , two years before his death, with " Those Lazy-Hazy-Crazy Days of Summer ", which reached number 6 on the Pop chart. The duet version rose to the top of the pop charts, almost forty years after its original popularity.
