Description
Mary Martin performs "My Heart Belongs to Daddy," the song from Cole Porter's 1938 musical Leave It to Me! that catapulted her to fame. Judy Garland recorded "Easy to Love" for the 1941 film Life Begins for Andy Hardy, but sadly it wasn't used. Other nonpareil renditions of Porter tunes among these 18 tracks include "I Concentrate on You" and "You're the Top" by Mel Tormé, "What Is This Thing Called Love?" by Peggy Lee, "Love for Sale" by Annie Ross, "I Get a Kick Out of You" by Sarah Vaughan, and "I've Got You Under My Skin" by Keely Smith.

"A handful of vocal and instrumental jazz legends pay respect to Porter's gift for unparalleled melodicism and clever lyrics. From Artie Shaw … with a charmingly smooth swing rendition of 'Begin the Beguine,' to George Benson's groovy, boogaloo-flavored 'Love for Sale,' a century's worth of musicians show their love for this Broadway icon. The perfection of Porter's songwriting is already common knowledge, so the real treat here is listening to the range of interpretations. Dinah Shore gets intimate on 'You'd Be So Nice To Come Home To,' Billie Holiday is beautifully woozy on 'Night & Day' (there's also a technically astonishing Django Reinhardt take on the same song), and Bing Crosby lends his timeless croon to 'Don't Fence Me In’."—All Music Guide
