The Jazz Giants Play Cole Porter: Night and Day

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Jim Newsom
The entire series of Jazz Giants Play compilations is well worth hearing, but this collection of jazz royalty interpreting the music of Cole Porter is one of the best of the lot. Porter's music has long been a favorite among jazzmen, and the variety of settings among the thirteen selections here shows why.

The oft-recorded "Night and Day" is showcased here in a cooking version from Everybody Digs Bill Evans, and Herb Ellis and Joe Pass contribute a beautiful guitar duet on "Love for Sale." Tenor sax greats Joe Henderson, Sonny Rollins and Gene Ammons each take a sizzling turn with a Porter tune, while Art Tatum delivers a dazzling solo piano run through "Begin the Beguine."
