Frank Tate conceived this album to celebrate the most influential musician in his career. He invited a half-dozen of Bobby ShortÕs saloon colleagues to perform the songs that, for them, best evoke Bobby Short. When Bobby Short took over the piano at New YorkÕs Caf Carlyle in 1968, he did more than entertain; he turned the room into a hothouse of retro chic, safe from the passage of time. With Short onstage, cares faded away. anyone who wanted to feel like a New York sophisticate Ð and that included presidents, movie stars, and just-plain-folks with some money to burn Ð hung on his every word. From the album notes by James Gavin, author of Intimate Nights: The Golden Age of New York Cabaret and Stormy Weather: The Life of Lena Horne.
