Photo Coverage: Inside Jazz at Lincoln Center's A TRIBUTE TO BOBBY SHORT

Jazz at Lincoln Center payed tribute to cabaret icon Bobby Short, with host James Naughton on May 15, and Michael Feinstein on May 16. Music Director Tedd Firth exhibits Short's signature songs alongside some of today's brightest stars of cabaret and Broadway, including guest vocalists Paula West, T. Oliver Reid, and Barbara Carroll. Chek out photos from the concert below!

"The lyric is my Bible," Bobby Short once said, describing the aesthetic stance to which he developed through a seven-decade career as a professional entertainer. Short spent consequential time during his last four decades as resident singer-pianist at the Café Carlyle on the Upper East Side, where his "gravelly baritone and perfect diction" demonstrated the triumph of character over beauty.
