"Cole Porter left a legacy as one of the nation's finest composers and songwriters."

Many of his songs became standards noted for their witty, urbane lyrics, and many of his scores found success on Broadway and in film. He created songs like "Night and Day," and the music for Broadway shows such as Anything Goes and Kiss Me, Kate.

In 1990, artists came together to record a collection of Cole Porter covers - to raise funds and awareness during the AIDS crisis. kd Lang and David Byrne take us in to explore the Cole Porter world by recording his compositions in their own styles.
