Music of Cole Porter tonight on Jazz After Dark. Prolific composer of the 20th Century, many of his songs became jazz standards thanks to vocal albums by Ella Fitzgerald, Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, and Julie London. We'll also hear instrumental versions from Stan Getz with Gerry Mulligan, Duke Ellington, Eddie Lockjaw Davis, Stephane Grapelli, and Stuff Smith, as well as contemporary vocal covers by Dianne Reeves and Diana Krall.
