Description
"First I think of idea for a song and then I fit it to a title" wrote Cole Porter of his composing process. "Then I go to work on a melody. Then I write the lyric—the end first—that way it has a strong finish." Porter's potent amalgam of sophistication and passion pervades these 18 interpretations of enduring classics from his songbook. Alternating between heartbreak and nonchalance, they include "Just One of Those Things" (Anita O'Day), "My Heart Belongs to Daddy" (Peggy Lee), "I Get a Kick Out of You" (Dinah Washington), "What Is This Thing Called Love" (Mel Tormé), "Easy to Love" (Billie Holiday), "You Do Something to Me" and "Too Darn Hot" (Ella Fitzgerald), "You'd Be So Nice To Come Home To" (Sarah Vaughan), "Begin the Beguine" (Tony Bennett), "Ev'ry Time We Say Goodbye" (Carmen McRae), "In the Still of the Night" (Aaron Neville), "It's De-Lovely" (Jeri Southern), "Love for Sale" (Shirley Horn), "Let's Do It, Let's Fall in Love" (Louis Armstrong), and more.
