This week Nick kicks off his Summer Songbook Series, inspired by Ella Fitzgerald's legendary Songbook albums. Each week the show is dedicated to a different songwriter. First up: a frolic through the music of Cole Porter. In Part 2: Wynton Marsalis with "What Is This Thing Called Love", Buddy Rich playing "Love For Sale", Bireli Lagrene's take on "I've Got You Under My Skin", and Ella singing "I Love Paris"- and Cole Porter himself gives us the definitive version of "You're the Top".
