Cole Porter in Print

| July 11, 2006

This article in the New York Times notes that the Library of America has given Cole Porter his own volume in their American Poets series. Porter is my all-time favorite songwriter and possibly the best songwriter America has ever produced or likely ever will — I have a hard time seeing someone else turn out over 800 songs, many of which continue to be covered today.

I’ll also insert a plug for the movie “De-Lovely”, a bio-pic starring Kevin Klein as Cole Porter.

Hat tip to Clive Davis.  ..bruce..
