Blossom Dearie for Mom

My mom noticed that the songwriter credit for one of the songs on the below-mentioned Yo Yo Ma album was listed as “Blossom Dearie”. And that is her real name.

She has a unique voice. I like what the note on the youtube below says: “Blossom Dearie’s voice, critic Whitney Balliett once wrote, would scarcely reach the second story of a doll house. But that has never stopped her from swinging like mad.”

Here you go, Mom! She’s singing and playing piano.

She’s winning me over.


About katiekind

Enjoying the second half of life. I have three sons who are the apples of my eye and a wonderful husband of 35 years--those are the important things. Long ago, out of the blue, I became a Christian. It was something I never planned on, but what joy it has been. I do website development and I like to read and garden and paint and I love beauty and truth.

    Thanks for sharing this.

    I have like blossom dearie for a long time , but recently i was on youtube and typed in “figure eight” for something or other . Well, up popped a schoolhouse rock song that i hadn’t heard in over 35 years. I was immediatley transported to being an 8 yr. old kid again.
    Aside from being a great jazz pianist, who knew she was a part of my childhood.

    beeb from chicago.
