Adi Braun's love affair with the music of Cole Porter runs long and deep. The acclaimed Toronto jazz and cabaret chanteuse has long covered his tunes in her performances and on record. She describes the music of her favorite Great American Songbook writer as "delicious, a great combination of naughty, provocative, sensuous, witty and devastatingly beautiful. I am also smitten by the fact that he wrote both lyrics and music, and his use of sexy Latin beats and rhythms is another major drawing card for me."Braun's affection for the work of the masterful songwriter has now reached full bloom with Night And Day (The Cole Porter Songbook), an album comprising ten classic Cole Porter songs given vibrant new life. Her sixth full-length record, it will be released on Sept. 15, 2023 on noted Toronto independent record label, ALMA Records.Adi's most ambitious album yet, Night and Dayis a collaboration with Emmy-winning Canadian keyboardist, songwriter, producer,and arranger Don Breithaupt (Monkey House, Brass Transit). The pair had long had a mutual admiration for each other's work, as Don explains."Adi was one of the first singers to record songs by the Breithaupt Brothers, on her 2005 album The Rules Of TheGame, and I've always respected her sound, her nuance as an interpreter, and her international approach to jazz. "I contacted her in 2021, as I had a feeling I could help her cook something great. The minute we zeroed in on the Cole Porter songbook, a bottomless well of great melodies and lyrics, we had our focus." The material on Night and Dayneatly showcases the broad emotional and musical range of Cole Porter's work, as exemplified in the title. Adi explains that "I find his songs illuminate different aspects of love, in a fascinating way."The tunes Braun interprets here range from light and bubbly romps to such powerfully emotional songs as "Love For Sale" and "In The Still Of The Night."
