Cole Porter had a huge success with the show "Can-Can" (1952), (featuring "C'est Magnifique" and "It's All Right with Me") running for 892 performances.

Cole Albert Porter (June 9, 1891 – October 15, 1964) was an American composer and songwriter. Born to a wealthy family in Indiana, he defied the wishes of his domineering grandfather and took up music as a profession. Classically trained, he was drawn towards musical theatre. After a slow start, he began to achieve success in the 1920s, and by the 1930s he was one of the major songwriters for the Broadway musical stage. Unlike most successful Broadway composers, Porter wrote both the lyrics and the music for his songs. He was a “Steinway Artist” and dabbled in more serious music in ballet collaborations with Darius Milhaud during his Paris period – showing the high regard in which he was held from early on in his career.

Below is a sample page of the Sheet Music for Cole Porter’s hit It’s all right with me. The full voice and piano score can be bought at Freehandmusic. It provides a useful example of how Louise Howlett and Albert Combrink arrange their songs. Both musicians use the original score as a starting point, but alter rhythm, melody and harmony. Their arrangement aims to give the song a more contemporary feel.
