United by theme rather than chronology, the albums that appear on this two-disc collection--BOBBY SHORT LOVES COLE PORTER (1971) and GUESS WHO'S IN TOWN (1987)--find the beloved cabaret performer paying tribute to two revered songwriters, one lauded (Porter) and one lesser-known (Andy Razaf). Highlighting both the brilliance of these time-honored tunes and Short's dapper, charismatic persona, the compilation is ideal for aficionados of American pop classics and devoted fans of the New York City icon. Highlights include the lively "You've Got That Thing" and a suave, inventive take on "Ain't Misbehavin'."
