CLASSIC COLE

Genre: Solo Performance
by Dan Callahan
"In "Classic Cole," writer-performer Dan Callahan sings a selection of the best known Cole Porter songs loosely in the order that they were written, from "What is This Thing Called Love?" to "True Love" and many more. Paying close attention to the sensual images in the Porter lyrics as well as their complex musicality, Callahan stresses the erotic longing of these great standards, expressing both their humor and their lust for the kind of worldly pleasures that make up for all loss.
