For their fifth album on Venus Records, Bill Charlap and his New York Trio took on another songbook. This time it was Cole Porter's. Begin the Beguine is part of Charlap's songbook series. Previous entries include that of Leonard Bernstein, George Gershwin, and Duke Ellington. When you mix the divine melodies and romantic nature of Cole Porter with this great piano trio that has played together for five years…well, the results are extraordinary. The album begins with the lively "You'd Be So Nice To Come Home To", then goes through the lovely "So In Love", the surprisingly unhurried "Begin the Beguine", and ends with the heart-rending "Every Time We Say Goodbye".
