  • Description
  • Personnel
Composer-lyricist Cole Porter (1891-1964) has long been a favorite of jazz musicians. This despite the fact that, unlike George Gershwin and Harold Arlen, Porter did not move in jazz circles. In fact, the wealthy Porter tended to socialize with the rich and famous in Paris, New York and Hollywood. Success came comparatively late to Porter; it wasn't until the late 1920s that he connected with Broadway audiences and critics. Out of his late-1920s/early-1930s shows came such classics as "What Is this Thing Called Love?", "Love for Sale", and "Night and Day". Soon, jazz artists such as Billie Holiday and Art Tatum saw the jazz potential in Porter's songs. In 1956, singer Ella Fitzgerald recorded her Cole Porter Songbook and helped frame Porter's songs as classics for all times. Carl Woideck and friends will be performing many of the Porter songs that jazz musicians most admire, including "In the Still of the Night", "Night and Day" (in a Coltrane-style arrangement) and "From this Moment On".
