    This show continues our alphabetical coverage of Cole Porter’s catalog, with a slight twist.

    A few of the songs here allow us to compare distinctly different interpretations of some of Porter’s most well-known work – some old and some new, some pensive and others swinging. One thing they all have in common is a sense of class that defined the stylization of an era that gave us “the Great American Songbook”.

    Here are but a few examples:

    From Now On – Bobby Short

    From This Moment On – Lena Horne

    From This Moment On – Sarah Vaughan

    Get Out of Town – Chris Connor

    I Am in Love – Nat King Cole

    I Am Loved – Judy Garland

    I Concentrate on You – Frances Wayne

    I Concentrate on You – Frank Sinatra and Tom Jobim

    I Get a Kick Out of You – Ethel Merman

    I Get a Kick Out of You – Louis Armstrong and Oscar Peterson

    I Hate Men – Nancy Walker)I Love Paris – Maurice Chevalier

    BONUS – Love For Sale – Aretha Franklin
