The Ultra Lounge series returns with Cocktails With Cole Porter, a collection of '50s and '60s renditions of songs Porter wrote in the '20s and '30s. For the most part, these songs made the transition into lounge territory intact; Nat King Cole's "Just One of Those Things," Ella Fitzgerald's "It's De-Lovely," Julie London's "My Heart Belongs to Daddy," Nancy Wilson's "You'd Be So Nice to Come Home To," and Peggy Lee's "Ridin' High" are some of the best examples of Porter songs refurbished for the lounge-pop era. Occasionally, schmaltzy producton overpowers both the singers and the songs themselves -- Dean Martin's sappy "True Love" and Judy Garland's overblown "I Happen to Like New York" are neither the best performances of these songs nor the best performances from these vocalists. Sammy Davis, Jr.'s "Easy to Love" and Steve Lawrence's "Night and Day" better incorporate the razzle-dazzle of '50s and '60s lounge music with Porter's timeless words and melodies, even if these interpretations seem more than a little glib compared to their subject matter. On the other hand, Louis Armstrong's radical revision of "High Society," "High Society Calypso," is a delightful blend of Armstrong and Porter's respective wittiness and the '50s passion for calypso music. Similarly, Peggy Lee and George Shearing's "Always True to You in My Fashion" adapts the song to the era's fascination with Latin rhythms with a playful grace. Ella Fitzgerald and the Duke Ellington Orchestra's "Let's Do It (Let's Fall in Love)" and Sarah Vaughan's "Ev'ry Time We Say Goodbye" close the collection with a breezy elegance that still sounds contemporary. Even though Cocktails With Cole Porter has its share of less-than-great moments, overall the album celebrates both nostalgia for the lounge-pop era and the timelessness of Porter's work. ~ Heather Phares, Rovi

There are three stages to establish an artist, and getting through the second one is always the hardest. The first stage is a fun phase with endless possibilities; there's so much ahead, and you start to dream really big. All six of your fans are fiercely loyal and basically you have tons of freedom for getting to the top. OK, done! Now, lets skip ahead ... The third stage is an amazing picture, larger than life. Touring internationally, headlining shows and selling millions of albums. Songs on hit radio stations, loved by millions and tons of groupies all around the world. You don't cope with a stage three hero and you get stuck at stage one, if you don't have a plan for stage two In fact, you don't even know what stage two is and make the mistake of wishing for that miracle Solution: The second stage is all about making a good album. Roughly speaking, arrange exciting songs full of SOUL, AFROLATIN and JAZZ, with a special love to modern BOSSA NOVA, now create a unique sound with selected vintage gear for that legendary Bahama Sound and scan the world for unmatched singers and stoned troubadours. You can ask the exiting Pat Appleton from DePhazz for a couple of songs. Shell give you a fantastic demonstration of her powerful soul and also a delightful atmospheric track. Then join geordie-man John Turrell from the great Smoove & Turrell for adding some gospel flavoured and soul powered melodies. And who can resist the amazing Ms. Bella Wagner for her wonderfully emotional and deep voice? For presenting some of the hottest talents please ask breezy dutch singer Sitzka for her sultry singing on big dirty beats. Furthermore, respect afro magic and fuse your latin beats with pure african high-life of inimitable multi-instrumenalist Kojato and twinkle to the afrolicious artwork of the CD-cover. Then you can probably add just a dear friend as A special Secret and let her sing magical notes to mystify the line-up. Finally do your very best on some remixes for selected fine artists like Xantoné Blacq, singer and keyboard player from Amy Winehouse and for incredible Bajka, probably the most unique female voice of this time and try to get these mixes on your album. This should complete a formidable bandwith of surpassing artists and voices around the globe, believe me. - So now: Let it simmer for a delicious chowder and you know what? It smells funky as yeah, and -its not a crime- as an old recording from the legendary Juju Orchestra proclaims, It just smells funky!. Remember the wise words from a cherished musician with a proper moustache: Jazz is not dead, it just smells funny, ~ The label about this release
