Around this time of year I have a Bobby Short jag, for some reason. His 'Songs of New York' album is so wonderful. Almost every track is fantastic. The intro to 'East Side of Heaven'(?) by Bucky Pizzerelli is sublime. I'd love to see him at the Carlyle some day, if he still plays regular nights.... Also, New York related songs I like include LCD Sound System's New York I love You (but you're bringing me down), various Lou Reed, Tony Bennett, Sinatra, Pogues, Waits tracks. What would others recommend for my diet in this period? Edit: Can't believe I forgot 'I happen to like New York' by Mr Short. Short yet so emotive. The only place I have found it is at the start of Manhattan Murder Mystery (Woody). If anyone has seen it anywhere else, please post....
