The phrase "Living Legend" is often bandied about - but there aren't many who get that designation from the Library of Congress. The late Bobby Short was but one of his many accomplishments. A staple of Manhattan's nightlife behind the piano of the Carlyle Club for over 35 years, he used to celebrate the "Great American Song". This show from Michael Feinstein's Jazz and Popular Song series features performances from Barbara Carroll, Paula West, T. Oliver Reid, and more. Wendell Pierce hosts.
