Not yet rated | write a review

The greatest justice you can do when interpreting someone else's song is to do it well. With talent like Mel Torme, Dizzy Gillespie and Dinah Washington on hand, you don't have much to worry about. The Complete Cole Porter Box Set is an album of interpretations of musician/lyricist's work, with each artist offering a different take on a Cole Porter classic. Fred Astaire turns in a spirited performance of "Night and Day", while Ella Fitzgerald is mesmerizing on the sultry "I've Got You Under My Skin." Porter purists beware - the interpretations aren't always true to the original - but are interestingly performed by some of jazz's biggest names.
