Night And Day is one of the best known jazz-standards at all, written by Cole Porter for his musical Gay Divorce in 1932. It might be that the most famous version is by Frank Sinatra – he recorded the song at least 5 times: 1942, 1947, 1956, 1961 and even a disco version with Joe Beck 1977.
Many other musicians covered Cole Porter’s marvellous evergreen, such as Billie Holdiday, Ella Fitzgerald, Bing Crosby, Anita O’Day, Helen Merrill and Shirley Bassey.
So this is my tribute to unforgettable, uncomparable Cole Porter – realized by my peerless model. Very special thanks to her and her unmatched perception.

“Night and day, you are the one
Only you ‘neath the moon or under the sun
Whether near to me or far
It’s no matter, darling, where you are
I think of you day and night …”
