Recording project for Bobby Short in 1998
Bobby Short (1924-2005) was one of the consummate NYC cabaret singer pianists. He had a 2nd home in Paris, France. It was there that he discovered a handful of unpublished songs by Cole Porter. The handwritten manuscripts were originally given in 1998 to a friend of mine who is a brilliant jazz pianist. However, my friend turned over the playing and first draft of recording to me, as I was more fluent at sightreading. He handed it back to Mr. Short and , Bobby Short recorded “You’re the Top:The Love Songs of Cole Porter” in 1999 on the Telarc Jazz label. With the opening song being “C’est Magnifique”, there is a certainly a chance this came from these informally recorded unpublished Cole Porter songs.
