Blossom Dearie passed away

Blossom Dearie was a jazz singer who passed away this week at the age of 82.  In the last months of his life, my father got a lot of pleasure from listening to her unique voice and piano playing.

She had a light, gentle, but very swinging style.  Enjoy:

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.

    Showing my age here… when I first read your title, I thought you’d lost a rose bush to the winter weather. *blush*

    I can definitely see why you’d think that!

    Blossom Dearie is her real name, believe it or not!
