CD Review: Cole Porter In Hollywood – The John Wilson Orchestra

Conductor, arranger and musical scholar John Wilson has brought together 15 Cole Porter classics for Cole Porter In Hollywood including Begin The Beguine ( from Broadway Melody of 1940), Love Of My Life (from The Pirate), and the albums grand opener Stereophonic Sound (from Silk Stockings).

In many cases, these recordings have been painstakingly recreated from the original film scores by Andrew Cottee and John Wilson and add to the records authenticity.

Fans of golden Hollywood musicals will love this gem of a collection which features Anna-Jane Casey, Kim Criswell, Matthew Ford, Sarah Fox and Richard Morrison providing vocal leads to these newly recorded orchestral arrangements.
