True Love: A Celebration of Cole Porter


Harry Connick, Jr.

Harry Connick, Jr.’s new album is comprised exclusively of Cole Porter compositions. True Love highlights Connick’s talents as pianist, singer, arranger, orchestrator, and conductor as he breathes new life into popular songs from the Great American Songbook including “Anything Goes” and “You Do Something To Me.”
“This is the first time I’ve taken a deep dive into another artist’s repertoire, and Cole Porter was my No. 1 choice for the project. His lyrics are witty and nuanced and he takes risks as a composer that I find appealing,” says Connick, a member of Local 802 (New York City)
Connick’s effort in pulling together True Love was multifaceted. After selecting the songs and writing and orchestrating the arrangements, he assembled and conducted the orchestra, which features his longtime touring band with additional horns and a full string section.
