New Continent (648067) Collectors’ Limited Edition In Special 6-Panel Digipack

Blossom Dearie created a jazz vocal style that was all her own and ended up as a fixture on the New York Supper Club scene.

BLOSSOM DEARIE vocals & piano; accompanied by small groups, featuring: Herb Ellis, Kenny Burrell, g; Ray Brown, b; Jo Jones, Ed Thigpen, d; among others. Recorded in New York & Los Angeles, 1956-1960.

This release presents some of the best recordings by Blossom Dearie, whose wispy vocals, classic repertoire, and quick wit have combined to make her a distinct stylist for over 50 years. Never forgotten, her iconic voice can often be heard in a variety of settings and formats. Recently, her recordings were featured on several episodes of the TV series The Marvellous Mrs. Maisel.

Dearie made the most of her delicate voice by incorporating elements of cabaret into her style. While the celebrated Diana Krall (who is also both a pianist and a singer) acknowledges that she listens to lyrics first, judging new songs from a theatrical, narrative perspective, for Blossom Dearie the attraction began with the melody.

‘’Because I’m a musician primarily, I listen to the music first,” she explained. ‘’If I don’t like the music, then I don’t do the song. Lyrics are the icing on the cake for me.”
