HITS-BLOSSOM DEARIE - BLOSSOM DEARIE


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 Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. Lacking the vocal prowess of Ella Fitzgerald and the range of Sarah Vaughan, Dearie made the most of her delicate voice by incorporating elements of cabaret into her style. While the celebrated Diana Krall, 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.”
