early morning show tunes: Cyd Charisse
Not to worry, I don’t plan on making this a regular feature, but I wanted to note yesterday’s passing of musical legend Cyd Charisse.
Here’s my favorite part of the New York Times obit:
Looking back on her work with Kelly and Astaire during a 2002 interview in The New York Times, Ms. Charisse said that her husband, Mr. Martin, always knew whom she had been dancing with. “If I was black and blue,” she said, “it was Gene. And if it was Fred, I didn’t have a scratch.”
Though the clip above is with Gene, I usually prefer Fred. And you?
