The style may be operatic, but Hampson soars 11 Oct 2008
By Santa Fe Listener - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The glut of crossover albums that came our way in the ripe era of Pavarotti, Kiri Te Kanawa, and Domingo has abated, leaving not the best taste in the mouth. But there were some high points, and this 1991 Cole Porter collection from Thomas Hampson is a gorgeous example. Like his hero from the 30s, Lawrence Tibbett, who triumphed as much on radio as in the opera house, Hampson sings full out, applying an overtly operatic baritone to popular song. He has such a command of vocal technique that, as with Tibbett and more recently Ben Heppner, the glory of the vocalism would carry the day on its own.

But Hampson adds to this a good deal of finesse, humor, and suavity--particularly the last. "Begin the Beguine" and "In the Still of the Night" convey the cosmopolitan asurance that is a Cole Porter trademark. There are also some bigger songs, such as "It Was Written in the Stars," where Hampson can unleash his voice at full force, a thrilling experience. I don't think there's been an opera star who's made a Cole Porter recording other than Kiri Te Kanawa, in forty years. This is a very enjoyable one indeed.

Cole Porter never sounded so good 18 Feb 2013
By DEK - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
What a great combination -- Cole Porter sung by Thomas Hampson. Rarely does a CD deliver one great song after another, but this one does. Hampson's singing and interpretation of Cole Porter is an absolute delight! If you like Cole Porter, you'll love this CD. I highly recommend it.

HAMPSEN & PORTER BRAVISIMO 30 Dec 2012
By William W. Geigerich - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
If Thomas Hampsen set out to make a superior recording of Cole Porter songs, HE SUCCEEDED. GET IT. You will be glad that you did. His Beguine and Night & Day make this selection worth it. GUYS THIS IS ROMANTIC CHICK MAGNET. ENJOY, ENJOY
THE VOICE 17 April 2014

He has the voice "to die for". Then there is the selection of songs...outstanding. I love Cole Porter and had never heard some of these songs. A really great album for Hampson or Porter fans.
