Love For Sale
"Jazz Casual," 1962
Written by Cole Porter for the 1931 “The New Yorkers,” “Love for Sale” is a song showing the perspective of a prostitute. It would later be covered by Eartha Kitt, Cannonball Adderley, Ella Fitzgerald, Tony Bennett and Billie Holiday.
New York City native Carmen McRae was a jazz vocalist who achieved fame for her phrasing “behind the beat” and for inspiration she drew from Billie Holiday. (She always included a Holiday song in her sets.)
