Cole Porter

When it's cold and a bit nippy out it's time to put Coal on the fire, grab a Porter Ale and enjoy some timeless music by that genius of lyrics – and composition – Cole Porter.

One of my sets will be of Porter song where urbane and witty lyrics delivered to a sinuous, brooding melody.  I'll present some of his best-known songs in this vein – perhaps "What Is This Thing Called Love," "Night and Day," "Love for Sale" and "Begin the Beguine."  

But an equally typical and equally recognizable Porter song would have a simple, bouncy melody and a lyric based on a long and entertaining list of similarities, opposite or contrasts. "Let's Do It" comes to mind while "You're the Top" was an exercise in the creation of superlatives that included such items as "the nimble tread of the feet of Fred Astaire," "Garbo's salary" and "Mickey Mouse."  Some of his songs have too many catchy words to remember such as the Physician!

Drop in on Sunday evening, January 8 and fulfill one of your new resolutions – that is to take the time to enjoy good friends, great music and a wonderfully cozy Plaza Bar.  You will also catch some great Cole Porter!

And…there could be some surprises, as well!.
