Cole Porter at Kevin's Place

A lot of you couldn't do the MSO Pops' Cole Porter weekend concerts.

Not to worry.

Kevin posts a few of Porter's works on the blog.

FWIW, Porter was one of America's best, smartest, and most gifted songwriters; pay attention to the texts and notice how the music "illuminates" the text--it's not just decoration or *thumpthump* BS--it makes the text work.

My only complaint about Kevin's wonderful tribute is that he doesn't have enough pictures of Katharin McPhee--who REALLY "gets" Cole Porter, too.
