Cole Porter - Night and day

The Tin Pan Alley was a musical genre spread during the 20s and which represented the popular song in the United States. It was born promoted by a group of composers in a place of New York City where the major music publishing companies where located. It was soon to become an imaginary line which went from the Broadway theaters to the Hollywood movies.

We listen to a piece written by Cole Porter who, along with George Gershwin, Jerome Kern, Irving Berlin and Richard Rodgers, formed the Golden Quinted of the Tin Pan Alley. Porter played piano and violin since he was six and when he was ten he wrote his first operetta. After passing through the universities of Yale (Law) and Harvard (Music) he dedicated himself to music and created songs considered standards or role models.
