This is Bobby Short like you've never heard him before. The tracks are more instrumental and the collaborative playing of the entire band sparkles. He gives us new interpretations of some classics in his repertoire, and songs I don't believe he has recorded previously. Bobby Short is not sitting still in the 21st Century, he keeps swinging down a brand new avenue. 2 people found this helpful.

The lyrics crystal-clear, so younger generations might just stumble onto them and want more.
