Add to Calendar 15-05-2013 16-05-2013 15 A Tribute to Bobby Short "The lyric is my Bible," Bobby Short once said, describing the aesthetic stance to which he hewed through a seven-decade career as a professional entertainer. Short spent consequential time during his last four decades as resident singer-pianist at the Cafe Carlyle on the Upper East Side, where, on a nightly basis "armed with a gravelly baritone and perfect diction" he demonstrated the triumph of character over beauty. Perhaps the swanky surroundings misled observers about the magnitude of Short's accomplishment (which were on full display at several memorable JALC galas). Music Director Tedd Firth will lay such misunderstandings to rest as he and hosts James Naughton (5/15) and Michael Feinstein (5/16) are joined by some of the brightest stars of cabaret and Broadway, including pianist Billy Stritch (5/15 only), saxophonist Andy Farber, and vocalists Paula West, T. Oliver Reid, and Barbara Carroll, to perform Short's signature songs -- and more. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=135942 Jazz at Lincoln Center true DD/MM/YYYY
