Ellen Rowe’s All About the Trio A Tribute to Cole Porter!

Ellen Rowe’s popular series, All About the Trio, returns to the House for A Tribute to Cole Porter!  

“Everybody loves Cole Porter. But most jazz musicians really love Cole Porter. Singers love his lyrics, which contain great wit, amazing rhymes and beautiful imagery. Instrumentalists love his elegant melodies and sophisticated song structures. During the three decades of Porter’s greatest productivity — the late 1920s through the late ’50s — jazz musicians would latch on to the latest Porter songs from his Broadway shows or Hollywood musicals and turn them into jazz standards almost immediately. Jazz artists are still exploring Cole Porter today.” (NPR: Jazz Notes newsletter – Nick Morrison)

For their March installment, the Trio (Ellen Rowe, piano; Paul Keller, bass; and Pete Siers, drums) will perform some of Cole Porter’s most well-loved pieces, including “Love For Sale”, “Everything I Love”, “Begin the Beguine” and “I Love You”, discussing why jazz players have chosen so many of them to use as vehicles for improvisation.  

Don’t miss another opportunity to be back in Kerrytown Concert House with Ann Arbor’s favorite jazz trio as they highlight Porter’s tremendous influence on the catalog of jazz standards!
