Bobby Short (I) (1924–2005)


Bobby Short was an attraction at Manhattan's Cafe Carlyle for three decades (he doubtless got his greatest exposure there in a scene from Woody Allen's film Hannah and Her Sisters (1986)). Short is the quintessential New Yorker, the Fred Astaire of saloon singers, an international icon of style and glamour. See full bio »

Personal Quote:

I go back to what I heard Marian Anderson say once: 'First a song has to be beautiful.' However 'beautiful' covers a wide range of things. I have to admire a song's structure and what it's about. But I also have to determine how I can transfer my affection for a song to an audience. I have to decide whether I can put it across. See more »

Trivia:

Wrote two memoirs, "Black and White Baby" (1971) and "Bobby Short: The Life and Times of a Saloon Singer" (1995). See more »
