Not that long ago they’d have needed no introduction. Perhaps they do now: She’s Mabel Mercer and he’s Bobby Short; together and separately they presided over Manhattan cabaret let it be known with their joint appearance in this room 45 years back. Pay tribute, Mercer-Short disciples singing tonight include Joyce Breach, Eric Comstock, Natalie Douglas, Barbara Fasano, Clint Holmes, Tanya Holt, Andrea Marcovicci, Karen Mason, Steve Ross, and Catherine Russell. Current Mabel Mercer Foundation artistic director KT Sullivan does the presiding.
