Cole Porter and the Gods of Gossamer

Well done, Matt Powell.  I find it a very interesting, informative and cogent  piece about one of my favorite Great American(a)  Songbook composers. I'm inspired to pick up my pen to write something witty and clever. 

This is a great article about one of the finest songwriters the world has ever known.  Porter was an absolute genius.  You're right about Ella's 1956 recording -- I've never heard anyone else come close to the perfect renditions of Porter's work that she offers up there.  Simply stunning.

Nice work...thanks for posting this.
