Jazz - Released January 1, 1982 | Concord Records

All of Rosemary Clooney's Concord albums are easily recommended to jazz listeners, for although she is not an improviser herself (preferring to state melodies fairly straight but with sincere feeling and a light swing), Clooney has featured top mainstream soloists on each of her records. This album (which features tenor saxophonist Scott Hamilton, cornetist Warren Vaché, guitarist Cal Collins, pianist Nat Pierce, and vibraphonist Cal Tjader) is fortunately no exception. Clooney's straightforward but enthusiastic and understanding interpretations of Cole Porter's sophisticated lyrics uplift even the most familiar of the tunes. Highlights include "I Get a Kick Out of You," "Get Out of Town," "Just One of Those Things," "I've Got You Under My Skin," and "You're the Top." © Scott Yanow /TiVo

Pop/Rock - Released December 9, 1986 | Masterworks Broadway

Cole Porter's 1934 musical was initially supposed to revolve around an impending shipwreck -- that is, until an actual shipwreck occurred just before the show went into rehearsals. The disaster portion was done away with, leaving intact the musical -- Anything Goes, as it has come to be known -- a lighthearted romp on a ship with criminals and nightclub singers and classic songs like "I Get a Kick Out of You" and "Blow Gabriel Blow," as well as the title song. The 1962 cast recording is altered some from the original version that premiered in 1934, making it an interesting comparison to other versions that are available. © Sarah Erlewine /TiVo

The first time that any one singer had sung so many songs by one composer on one release, Ella Fitzgerald's Sings the Cole Porter Song Book was an immediate masterwork that introduced vast swaths of the public to every possible facet of Cole Porter's charms. It covered nearly 30 years of his writing career, included both the very famous songs ("I Get a Kick out of You," "Just One of Those Things," "In the Still of the Night," "Begin the Beguine,") and the almost unheard ("It's All Right with Me"), and caused the composer himself to exclaim "Wonderful!" and compliment her diction. The 2007 Verve compilation The Very Best of the Cole Porter Song Book includes only one-third of the songs from the original, but it forms a solid introduction to one of Fitzgerald's best works. For those who don't have the confidence to spring for the full set, these 12 songs will probably convince them. © John Bush /TiVo

Cole Porter's 1934 Broadway musical Anything Goes was one of his more celebrated efforts, throwing off such standards as "I Get a Kick Out of You" and "You're the Top" in addition to the title tune, and it was adapted for film twice, in 1936 and 1956. Strangely, it did not attract a notable stage revival until 1962, when a version ran Off-Broadway and produced a cast album (the first, since there was no original Broadway cast album). Then, it took another 25 years for a full-scale Broadway revival when a revised version opened at the Vivian Beaumont Theatre in Lincoln Center on October 19, 1987, starring Patti LuPone as Reno Sweeney. The script had been redone by John Weidman and Timothy Crouse (Crouse was the son of Russel Crouse, one of the original librettists), and the score had been altered, with some songs dropped and some interpolated from other Porter scores. As in the 1956 film and the 1962 revival, "It's De-Lovely" from Red, Hot and Blue was included, and "Friendship" from DuBarry Was a Lady was used, as it had been in 1962. In addition, there was "Easy to Love," a song actually written for Anything Goes, although it was cut and later included in the film Born to Dance. Those were all well-known Porter songs. More obscure were "I Want to Row on the Crew," which Porter wrote for a college show at Yale in 1914, and "Goodbye, Little Dream, Goodbye," which first appeared in the British musical O Mistress Mine. Also, several songs were reassigned from one character to another, so that, for example, "The Gypsy in Me," sung by Hope Harcourt in 1934, was given to her fiancé, Lord Evelyn Oakleigh (Anthony Heald), a character who did not sing at all originally, and "Buddie, Beware," originally sung by Reno Sweeney, went to a newly created, or at least newly named, character, Erma (Linda Hart). (A similar character in the original version was called Bonnie.) The cast did a wonderful job with the songs. LuPone, a Tony winner for Evita, shone on "I Get a Kick Out of You," "You're the Top," "Friendship," "Anything Goes," and "Blow, Gabriel, Blow." Howard McGillin, as the male lead, Billy Crocker, joined her on "You're the Top," sang "Easy to Love" alone, and paired with the ingénue Hope Harcourt (Kathleen Mahoney-Bennett) on "It's De-Lovely" and "All Through the Night." Bill McCutcheon, as Moonface Martin (Public Enemy Number 13), teamed with LuPone on "Friendship" and had his own showcase with "Be Like the Bluebird," winning a Tony for his trouble. And the show itself won the Tony for best revival, going on to play 804 performances, which was 384 more than the original production. The cast album, which began, like the show, with a snatch of an actual Cole Porter recording, was the best rendering of the show released up to its time. © William Ruhlmann /TiVo
