In the Friars Club show biz past and present are always in the house. Their photos are on the wall and names are engraved on the chairs in the Frank Sinatra Dining Room. Then as so often happens an 'insiders' great show is produced for the members and those legends current and future entertain their fellow Friars. So it happened last night as the Friars Club honored Bobby Short, the legendary cabaret singer/pianist who was best known for his three decade plus music residency at Cafe Carlyle in New York City.

It might require a bit of stamina but if you can move fast you can hear Marilyn Maye at a7PMshow at Feinstein's/54 Below only stay for one standing ovation and then scoot down to Birdland at 44th street just in time for Ann Hampton Callaway's taking the stage to another standing ovation at 'The Jazz Corner of The World'. Is there another place on the planet where 2 of the greatest female jazz/pop vocalists are appearing within 1/2 mile? Marilyn's show is called 'Carrying The Torch' and as the world knows she is capable of running with that torch and lighting the flame at the Olympics but in this case she is keeping the flame of the American Songbook burning.

The word Artist is never more accurately applied to an entertainer then when it is used to describe Clint Holmes. Clint starts with a familiar song title on a blank music page, and then goes on to create something you never thought that tune could become. His vocal, jazz, acting ability, combined with his creativity cross every music red, blue, black and white music line you ever laid down. Most of the audience at Jim Caruso's Broadway at Birdland Series were already 'educated consumers' at his performance celebrating the CD Release of 'Rendezvous' last night. However, for all, it was a reminder of what a truly great performer can brilliantly accomplish with the same 12 notes and combination of beats that all vocalists have at their disposal.

Remember when that tall handsome imposing clothing executive J. Peterman would reprimand Elaine Benes his trusted employee (and Jerry's soulmate)? He had a somber pompous demeanor, but then his conversation made a U-turn into something absurdly funny. That's the way John O'Hurley, the brilliant actor, author and Broadway performer ( Billy Flynn,Chicago) starts his Cafe Carlyle cabaret act, with a reprimand to Darwin Best who makes the off stage announcement at The Carlyle.'You call that an introduction'? Then John O'Hurley proceeds to introduce himself with an authoritative voice that's a mix of Richard Burton, Edward R. Murray and Charles Kuralt.
