Earl Hines plays Cole Porter

Amazingly, before Hines recorded this tribute of solo piano pieces in 1974, he had never before recorded a single Cole Porter tune, nor was he to do so after.
Hines is great at capturing that feeling a love about Porter tunes when done right. All classy but firmly tongue in cheek. Unfortunately Hines sticks strictly to the the known masterpieces.I wish more folks would dig out some hidden gems.
