“You’re the Top,” “Night and Day,” “All Through the Night”: Cole Porter — sophisticated, witty, passionate — was one of the most important and unique songwriters of America’s golden age.
And Cécile McLorin Salvant possesses one of today’s most stunningly beautiful voices. Put the two together and you have a night no jazz lover can afford to miss. The dynamic trio of pianist Bill Charlap, bassist Peter Washington and drummer Kenny Washington, plus the lyrical, swinging tenor saxophone of Harry Allen, round out a “swellegant” evening dedicated to the one and only Cole.
