Cole Porter (1891-1964)
There was very little that Cole Porter considered taboo. He lived “larger than life,” inheriting a fortune, marrying into one, and amassing his own musical fortune. Cole Porter was a master of romance and for the past century these songs have been a lasting part of our musical history. His music is highly adaptable even today. His lyrics have contemporary concepts and are stunningly smart.
