Über Cole Porter
Cole Porter is considered the single greatest songwriter to work in the American theater. His songs allow you to enter a rarified, adult world full of sophisticated lovers who embrace frivolous fun while nursing broken hearts. To Porter, love was a martini that caused one hell of a high, but an even worse hangover. His music was as intelligent as his lyrics, and could be complex and catchy at the same time. Such songs as "Night and Day," "I've Got You Under My Skin" and "I Get a Kick Out of You" are still recorded regularly by vocalists and jazz musicians. A Cole Porter song is the perfect marriage between style and substance.
