Jazz artist Kristina Koller will be presenting her unique musical arrangements of one of her all time favorite Great American Songbook composers, Cole Porter. Ranging from his well known compositions such as “I’ve Got You Under My Skin” and “Just One of Those Things”, to a repertoire of never recorded tunes. Porter was known for his bold choices. What better way to honor his boldness with arrangements that bring out the music in a new, contemporary way.
The quartet will include Fima Chupakhin on piano, James Robbins on bass and Juan Chiavassa on drums.
