Blossom Dearie, 1926-2009

Blossom Dearie, "Rhode Island Is Famous For You"

My favorite song by one of my favorite performers.
You may have known her best from the moody Schoolhouse Rock number "Figure Eight."
There's lots more out there. Look out for her collaboration with Bob Dorough, "I'm Hip", or her excellent, slow run through "Manhattan", or the marvelous "They Say It's Spring." That's just scratching the surface.


Let me add one that I like a lot.

Too many people are leaving us...
