Dream Dancing: Songs of Cole Porter

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - David R. Adler
This straight-ahead Cole Porter tribute was one of the first three releases from Hillsboro, a Nashville-based label that got off the ground in early 2001. The other two were Antoine Silverman's Blue Moods and Jack Jezzro's Jazz Elegance. Pianist Beegie Adair certainly knows her way around these songs, and she's aided expertly by bassist Roger Spencer and drummer Chris Brown.
