ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Cole Porter's French connections remained constant throughout his life and career. Many of the songs on this album came from Porter musicals with wonderful French themes and settings (Fifty Million Frenchmen, Silk Stockings, DuBarry Was a Lady, Les Girls). "I'm in Love Again" was a big hit during Porter's early wongwriting days in Paris. We were thrilled to find French lyrics for "Night and Day" - it's always been a favorite. My most personal connection to Porter's music came on my first night in France. Earlier in the day, I'd sung at my friend Julie's wedding ceremony. Afterward, at the reception, the guests gathered around me in a circle and asked me to sing again - anything I liked. I looked at the happy newlyweds, and out popped "suntanned, windblown, honeymooners at last alone..." This project has been many years in the making, from work with Robert Kimball at the Manhattan School of Music, to countless late-night conversations with musical directors, historians, singers and friends, to several performances in Chicago, New York, Arlington, VA and finally to the recording studio. Many thanks to everyone who made it possible. True love, indeed. - Colleen McHugh
