Blossom Dearie (1926-2009)

Blossom Dearie had a gig for years on Restaurant Row. I could have seen her at any time. Now it's too late, as I've learned over the radio from Jonathan Schwartz.

Yet another reminder to make the most of one's time in NYC.

Here she is in concert c. 1985.

And here she sings the Dave Frishberg tune "I'm Hip."

And here she sings Frishberg's "Unpack Your Adjectives."

I just heard on npr! Thought of you and knew that you must have posted. Going to see her has been on your to-do list for at least the past 4 years! Sorry you never got to it.
