cole porter is genius
all of these songs are as well preformed as they are written... a must-have for anyone who appreciates music at its finest.
An American Classic
A fine collection of the work of an American icon, this collection demonstrates the versatility and accessibilty of Porter's work. Enough has been said of Porter's musical and lyrical genius; this collection covers a number of approaches to his songs, from Ella Fitzgerald's brash, polished "Too Darn Hot" to Billie Holiday's gut-wrenchingly plaintive (and beautiful) "Easy to Love." Fred Astaire's Night and Day is a masterpiece of its period, epitomizing 1930s Hollywood suave. There are too many other, cheesy renditions of Porter songs but these tracks all possess the musical integrity real jazz listeners will appreciate.
