Description
The Verve label is synonymous with jazz, and these 17 tracks demonstrate the musical and interpretive heights to which a jazz singer could take a Cole Porter song. They include "Love for Sale" by Shirley Horn, "What Is This Thing Called Love" by Mel Torme, "I Love You" by Anita O'Day, and "It's De-Lovely" by Sarah Vaughan.

"All turn in performances befitting Porter's genius—and Porter has these talents to thank for enlivening his work like no stage singer ever could. The selections range from lithe and Latinized interpretations by Dinah Washington ('I've Got You Under My Skin') and Billy Eckstine ('In the Still of the Night') to nonpareil renditions from Louis Armstrong ('Let's Do It') and Ella Fitzgerald ('Anything Goes') … with Blossom Dearie's 'Always True to You in My Fashion' deserving special mention. Whether you are looking for a jazz vocal sampler or a Porter overview, this very enjoyable collection will definitely do the trick."—All Music Guide
