Blossom Dearie 1924-2009

When playing that American Songbook game in which everyone tries to guess who's singing, if you've exhausted all possibilities and still cannot identify the voice, it's probably hers.

I was so sad when I heard about this. Ms. Dearie was an individual above all else. I think her rendition of "China Doll" is my favorite.

Blossom is incredibly easy to identify.

Nobody sounds like her.

RIP Blossom, you were indeed a piece of work. Every time I hear Apple Blossom Time in Winchester I'll raise a toast.
