Planet Cole Porter
Guitarist Peter Sprague takes Cole Porter’s classic songs and presents them in a new color of samba, funk, salsa, and jazz. Come hear fresh and inventive arrangements such as Just One of Those Things, which swings fast. Morphing over to funk, Love For Sale takes a trip to Cuba, while Night and Day arcs with a Brazilian moon. Meanwhile, I Get a Kick Out of You is heavily influenced by Eddie Harris’ Freedom Jazz Dance, and Every Time We Say Goodbye is as nice and gentle as Cole intended it to be. Sprague has won numerous awards including the Lifetime Achievement Award at the San Diego Music Awards (2015). His band features Rebecca Jade on vocals, Tripp Sprague on sax and flute, Gunnar Biggs on bass, and Duncan Moore on drums.
