So nice to come home to.

"Having very much enjoyed Mr.Wilsons previous albums, "Romance of Paris" and "Cafe Europa," my husband and I where delighted to discover this Cole Porter Collection. We were not disappointed. The qualities David imbues into these great songs combine gentle casualness with an elegant passion. Speaking for my husband and I, this album succeeds in pushing all the right buttons."
Not a CD for the ages.

"In one of the Amazon editorials about this effort, the writer said something like "sweeping romantic renditions....." of classic Cole Porter songs. All I can say is his interpretation of something that is sweepingly romantic is a far cry from my own. To me Mr. Wilson's playing is very similar to Stephan Grapelli, which means the intonation borders on the squawking rather than the creamy and romantic. The sound quality of the recording itself is quite good. But unless you want a CD that could easily be titled "Stephan Grapelli Plays Cole Porter," you can safely avoid this production. Now both Mr. Wilson and Mr. Grapelli are exceptional jazz violinists. But from you've already read, you can probably tell this effort is not suited to my tastes."
