Blossom Dearie

She died on Saturday in her sleep. Soul Sides has a couple of mp3s, including one of my favorites, "Sunday Afternoon." Another great one, "I'm Hip," at Keep the Coffee Coming. Sigh....

Very Michael Franksy. Is he emulating her?

Loved the "I'm Hip". What a name! A perfect fit for her voice.

MT said...

Doh! That's "Dave Frischbergy," not "Michael Franksy." MT regrets the error.

MT said...

Ahem: "Frish..." not "Frisch..."
MT regrets the incompetence.

I've loved Dave Frishberg forever for "My Attorney Bernie," so I really have been overdue to know Dearie.

I'm glad you figured that all out, MT. I was afraid I was going to have to slap you around for the Franks comparison. Blossom had a unique voice and style, but it wasn't super-creepy soft jazz.
