New York Trio Tackles the Songbook of Cole Porter on 180g Vinyl!

For their fifth album on Venus Records, Bill Charlap and his New York Trio took on another songbook. This time it was Cole Porter's. Begin the Beguine is part of Charlap's songbook series. Previous entries include that of Leonard Bernstein, George Gershwin, and Duke Ellington.

When you mix the divine melodies and romantic nature of Cole Porter with this great piano trio that has played together for five years...well, the results are extraordinary. The album begins with the lively "You'd Be So Nice to Come Home To," then goes through the lovely "So in Love," and ends with the surprisingly unhurried "Begin the Beguine."

...there is plenty of chemistry between the three veterans...Charlap's lyrical piano style is quite effective, capturing the nuances of Porter's humor (even though none of his lyrics are heard), while the rhythm section gels nicely with the pianist.
