Songs of New York -- Live at the Cafe Carlyle (1995)

EW's GRADE
A+

Details Lead Performance: Bobby Short; Genre: Jazz

Arranger Howard Alden, cornetist Warren Vaché, guitarist Bucky Pizzarelli, et al. give Bobby Short his finest showcase in years, on Songs of New York — Live at the Cafe Carlyle. The instrumental backing (whether delicately shaded on ''Penthouse Serenade'' or infectiously swinging on ''Upper Madison Avenue Blues'') is no less intriguing than Short's high-style singing.
