Bobby Short (I) (1924–2005)


Bobby Short was an attraction at Manhattan's Cafe Carlyle for three decades (he doubtless got his greatest exposure there in a scene from Woody Allen's film Hannah and Her Sisters (1986)). Short is the quintessential New Yorker, the Fred Astaire of saloon singers, an international icon of style and glamour. See full bio »

Personal Quote:

A young man told me, 'How dare you insult your race by not singing the blues?' I still get feedback about that. I'm a 76-year-old black man living in a white society; I've gone through the medley. I'd like to think my legacy included having done something positive to help eliminate the problems between races. I never let racism into the core of me. See more »
