Synopsis

Product Description
When Blossom Dearie first emerged as a solo artist she was already unique in many ways. Straightaway there was that voice - kittenish, intimate, coquettish and understated where so many other jazz divas were straining to belt out every song. With the fascinating 1957-58 albums 'Give Him the Ooh-la-la' and 'Once Upon a Summertime' Blossom finds a unique, light, refined niche on the popside of jazz. Ray Brown remains for the 1958 set with Herb Ellis and Jo Jones replaced by Mundell Lowe and Ed Thigpen. Her meteoric jazz career for Verve apart, Blossom Dearie left an indelible impression on mainstream seventies America with her breathtakingly unique performances of Unpack Your Adjectives and Figure Eight for the educational animated TV programme 'Schoolhouse Rock' and the cute, groovy quality of her work.
