Arranger Howard Alden, cornetist Warren Vaché, guitarist Bucky Pizzarelli, et al. give Bobby Short his finest showcase in years, on Songs of New York — Live at the Cafe Carlyle. The instrumental backing (whether delicately shaded on ”Penthouse Serenade” or infectiously swinging on ”Upper Madison Avenue Blues”) is no less intriguing than Short’s high-style singing.
