Being the recipient of the first Cole Porter Award, presented to him by the Porter family, Bobby’s unparallelled signature Cole Porter tunes are included in this set of fourteen tracks. He also colaborates with concertmaster Loren Schoenberg on an unusual arrangement of two superimposed tunes; Josephine Baker’s, “You’re Driving Me Crazy,” and the Basie classic, “Moten Swing.”
Legendary blues singer Lil Green wrote and recorded the tune “Romance in the Dark,” included here, and Shirley Temple sang “Picture Me Without You” in the 1936 movie Dimples. In addition, “Body and Soul” dates from the 1930 musical Three’s A Crowd. These selections just go to prove that Bobby Short has class and style like none other.
