Photo Coverage: Will Friedwald Presents Mabel Mercer, Bobby Short, Polly Bergen & More at Clip Joint

Last night Cabaret aficionados gathered at "Clip Joint" to see and hear rare footage of performances by Mabel Mercer, Bobby Short, Polly Bergen, Edith Piaf, Blossom Dearie, and many others.

Will Friedwald's "Clip Joint" is a unique music video presentation, designed for the comparatively intimate space of a bar or a nightclub. Curated by Will Friedwald, columnist for THE WALL STREET JOURNAL and author of eight books on music and popular culture, "Clip Joint" is a two to three hour presentation that covers the entire range and spectrum of musical performances as documented on film and video, both classic and contemporary: from jazz and Broadway to rock and pop to country & western, blues, opera, classical, comedy and novelty songs, world music, and the Great American Songbook.
