Album Notes and Credits
Tributee: Cole Porter.
Liner Note Author: Will Friedwald.
Undoubtedly released to coincide with the soundtrack to the 2004 Cole Porter biopic DE-LOVELY, this songbook collection features some of the mid-20th century's finest song stylists sinking their teeth into the urbane composer's meaty catalog. In contrast, the DE-LOVELY soundtrack offers contemporary popsters tackling Porter's material-- whether you want to hear "True Love" sung by Ashley Judd or Dean Martin is between you and your clergyman (or therapist). Regardless, it's impossible to argue with Louis Armstrong's deliciously lascivious take on "Let's Do It," Helen Merrill's breathy, sultry interpretation of "Anything Goes," or Eartha Kitt's downright decadent delivery of "Let's Misbehave." More prurient topics aside, to hear Fred Astaire's elegant, perfectly phrased version of "Night and Day" is to instantly comprehend the marriage of sophistication and pure emotion at the heart of Porter's finest work.
Artist Overview
Responsible for such classics as "I've Got You Under My Skin," "Let's Do It, Let's Fall in Love," and "Anything Goes," Cole Porter is synonymous with both the American songbook and Broadway musical tradition. A prolific composer and lyricist, Porter wrote numerous musicals throughout the 1930s, '40s, and '50s, including CAN-CAN and KISS ME, KATE. His songs represent the epitome of pop wit and sophistication, and have been performed by artists from Frank Sinatra and Peggy Lee to the Jungle Brothers and Paul Westerberg.
