Connick Covers Porter On Double LP!

2021 Grammy Award Nominee:
• Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album: True Love: A Celebration Of Cole Porter

How does one improve on 13 No. 1 jazz albums and an acting career that spans across film, TV, and Broadway? Well, Harry Connick, Jr. follows all that up with covering Cole Porter compositions - titled True Love: A Celebration of Cole Porter. The tracklisting contains songs from The Great American Songbook including "Anything Goes" and "You Do Something To Me".

"This is the first time I've taken a deep dive into another artist's repertoire, and Cole Porter was my #1 choice for the project. His lyrics are witty and nuanced and he takes risks as a composer that I find appealing," Connick said.

Cole Porter's body of work, composed primarily for Broadway and Hollywood, comprises one of the central chapters in the Great American Songbook. It is not surprising that Porter would appeal to Connick since, like Connick, he wrote both music and lyrics and redefined what it meant to be the complete songwriter. Connick, whose success in several styles of music as well as film, theater and television has similarly reshaped the notion of what it means to be the complete entertainer.

Connick's effort in pulling together the album True Love was typically Herculean. After selecting the songs, and writing and orchestrating the arrangements, he assembled and conducted the orchestra which features his longtime touring band with additional horns and a full string section.

Celebrated worldwide for his multi-faceted talents as singer, pianist, composer, arranger, bandleader, presenter and actor, Harry Connick, Jr. has been performing since he was 9 years old. He emerged on the scene with a precocious command of jazz and popular music styles, having been trained by legendary pianists Ellis Marsalis and James Booker in his native New Orleans.
